Install instructions state "Apply a thing layer of 100% Pure PTFE (Teflon) Grease to the BB Cup surface and BB shell"

I have a tube of the Park Tool Polylube 1000 (PPL-1) but currently no PTFE grease. Would you recommend finding some PTFE grease for the install, or is using the Polylube a viable substitution?

This is on the BB Cup and BB Shell contact surfaces, not the threads of the BB cups.

Having read the Wheels Mfg instructions, they also say 'installation procedure to be performed only by people with short finger-nails and wearing blue t shirts'.

I emailed W-M this question some time ago and this was their reply:

You can use Finish Line Extreme Flouro (http://www.finishlineusa.com/products/b ... oro-grease)


Bought some from Amazon and used it, works just fine.
