Installing new pedals on my Campy Veloce cranks, which lube do I use for the threads WD40? Lithium Grease? 3in1? Thanks in advance

|Stick with a nice little dab of white lithium grease, or any relatively heavy grease. WD-40 and 3-in-1 are both too light / thin (viscosity?).

|Grease on threads and bearings. Oil on bushings and other sliding surfaces.|
|Yes, white lithium grease.||boy nigel|

|This stuff's great. While you're at it, put some on your seatpost/shim, saddle rails, seatpost binder bolt, stem bolts, etc. Your bike will last longer and will work much smoother. Gotta protect that metal! |
|Correction! NOT lithium grease, but SYNTHETIC grease||boy nigel|

|I use either Finish Line or Pedro's greases, and they're both synthetic greases; no lithium in them. For metal pedal threads, though, lithium can't hurt. Syn greases tend to be a bit more eco-friendly and don't corrode plastic parts. |
Sorry for any confusion.
