It's easy to find many non-expert opinions about the dangers of using grease on carbon fibre components. Which kinds of lubricant cause no harm to carbon components, and which, if any, can damage them?

    $\begingroup$ Silicone grease is typically inert and is suitable for most materials, besides silicone rubber. I'm also not an expert. $\endgroup$
