You want these grips, I guarantee they are exactly what you are after



Where you would find a set I have no idea, they are made by GT and I had a set maybe 10 years ago.

I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

If it moves grease it, if it is a static thread (like pedals, wheel or stem bolts etc) then coppaslip or some other anti seize is better but grease or oil is better than nothing.

Loctite has no place on most bikes. If you need it on spokes or anything like that then you are doing it wrong. IMHO.

Ha I genuinely thought locktite was needed for something. Good thing is asked here then.

Super stupid question now but what about where the stem clamps the steerer tube and where it clamps the bars?

i always grease the steerer, makes getting the stem on and off easier. never really thought to do the bar clamp tho, i usually leave that clean and dry

yesss definitely grease your seat post. you don't know frustration until you have to unseize a seized seat post.
