    hey wrenches: methods and materials question

    Let's say I'm building a titanium frame with an aluminum seat post.

    Is it proper to use anti-seize on the seat post, or is your standard green Park grease sufficient to stop the two metals from binding?

    Grease is fine.

    red stuff

    Personally, I'd recommend using the red (or pinkish depending on what type you find) "assembly compound". Grease isn't really the perfect stuff for seatposts/seat tubes.

    grease is fine. i done it for years. my post still comes out.

    the 'red' stuff is copper anti-seize. pay your LBS $$$ for finish line ti-prep, or pay napa pennies for copper anti-seize. same stuff. it works too.

    if you've got a ti frame, it's probably worth having the copper AS around. use it on anything threaded into ti, and definitely on cable ferrules in ti stops!
