Hi guys

Another question,

Iv bought my carbon seatpost, it's going into the bike tomorrow now the questions -

1 - Iv got a carbon frame with a Alu post and seat clamp in already, do I need to replace the clamp as well when I replace the post?

2 - What's the deal with carbon paste? Is it necessaty? And if yes what do I do with it

3 - Cutting the post? Tips?

4 - Anything else I need to know?


Thanks in advance guys

Cheers
