DA BB installed in Litespeed Ultimate(3 posts)

This is my first titanium frame. Have used teflon tape and grease in the past while installing bottom brackets. Any suggestions or concerns for installation in the Litespeed frame?

Use ti prep instead of grease other wise you risk the bb siezing in the frame. Litespeed is fairly percise so with any luck the teflon tape shouldn't be needed. TTFN

Either one will work fine for the BB - on my Ultimate (a 99) with an Ultegra BB, I have been useing teflon tape with no problems at all. It's probably a safe assumption that installing the DA bottom bracket the same way will yield comparable results.
