    What's the copper colored paste on my HDR shock mount screws?

    Took the shock off my HDR and noticed a little copper looking paste around the bolts for the limbo chips.

    Anti-seize? Grease?

    Mostly curious if there's anything special about it.

    Its anti seize. Look at page 45 of the Ibis set up guide.

    Ah, that makes sense. So I wonder if that means the HDR runs Ti hardware. And I just noticed they put out a new rev of the guide on Feb 28.

    Yep, copper anti-seize for the Ti fasteners (upper link x4, rear shock bolt, seat post collar, and fwd shock pin although some people may use Loctite here. Oh and the lower pivot axles take Loctite despite being Ti.)

    Just picked up a stick of that stuff to keep things smooth.

    The lower pivot axles are aluminium alloy, hence the loctite.

    Yep, I think that's a No-No.
