In a few weeks, when the frame arrives, I will start building up my first Titanium frame.
A material with which I have no experience whatsoever to be honest.
One of the components I am planning to use is a Titanium headset. A lot could be said of course concerning the benefit in that, but that's just what I would like to use.
But one aspect I have been reading about is the danger of Titanium components galling together, resulting in a permanent bond. I of course plan to use copper based anti seize when installing the headset, but I still feel uncomfortable with this issue. This because I have not been able to find any clear information regarding how likely the galling will occur and how good the copper based anti seize will prevent this. And as said, I have no experience in this domain whatsoever.
I therefore hope some of you will have some real experience with this subject. Information such as the chance it will occur, the effectiveness of anti seize, the time-frame in which it will bond permannently, the need for some regular maintenance,... are more than welcome.
Thank you in advance!
In order to maximise the replies and because I could not determine the best forum, I have also posted this question in the "Weight Weenies" and "General Discussion" forums since I suppose these are the forums with probably the most 'Titanium-expereince'.
