Seatpost creak after rain trip(1 post)

Seatpost creak after rain tripDirk Lenart

I've got a ITM Millennium seatpost on my roadbike and a Thomson Elite on my MTB.

Whenever I'm riding in wet conditions, the seatposts develop a creak when I use them the next time. It's always the titanium saddle rail/seatpost clamp interface that causes the trouble.

Taking them apart and greasing (Motorex bike grease, White lithium grease) solves the problem, but I find this troublesome to repeat. Any suggestions to survive rain riding without developing a creak.
