Someone's ignorance (lack of knowledge) is not "shameful", especially if one is open minded to learn and improve. If anything is shameful it would be criticizing others ignorance while contributing nothing to help them.

I'm starting to believe that a lot more people here than I previously thought don't understand the difference between a square taper interface, a seatpost, and a quill stem(sing it with me now, "one of these things is not like the other things..")

The good news is this confusion probably won't end up with them hurting themselves, but sadly the mechanical ignorance will continue to be spread

Shameful

It's the spreading that's shameful

Ah yes, but the grease helps prevent the oxidization which seizes the cranks onto the taper in the first place... :wink:


I'm no chemist but I'm pretty sure cranks seize because of galvanic corrosion, not oxidization.

I don't grease, FWIW. Use Loctite myself.
