    Yes, I used to get nasty creaking of my alloy seatpost in alloy frame, and even occasional slipping. I used the TACX carbon assembly paste and it solved it. All my riding buddies are now using it too...

    I been reading that stuff helps to reduce the amount of torque needed to fasten stuff too.I think I might slap some on my seatposts and stem/steerer tube interfaces.That and blue loctite are on my menu....and some teflon plumber's tape on my BB threads.I hear Buzzy's slick honey is good stuff too. I like my bikes to run smooth like a Rolex.
