    Press fit headset and Bottom Bracket

    When building up a Czar are you putting the press fit BB (Parlee PF-30 to Shimano) and HS (Crane Creek 40) in dry or what are you using?

    ^^^^^^

    Worked fine, including drama-free removal of fragged Wheels BB for replacement with Praxis.

    I used marine grade anti-seize (recommended by Praxis). I'm hoping it will be most long lasting.

    I will be interested to see if these press fit components end up completely stuck in the frame in 2 or 3 years. . . I had TWO carbon seat posts completely, permanently, and absolutely stuck in two different Turner frames in years past. Had to chisel them out. . .

    Also curious to see whether galvanic corrosion will be a factor with carbon frames and aluminum components.
