|Two Questions re: Carbon Fibre||Caper|

|Hi, I've got two dumb questions about a carbon fibre frame. First, can you wax it? I know that an aluminum and steel frame can be waxed, but not sure about cf. Second, when installing the bottom bracket in a cf frame, are the tourque settings different so as not to damage the frame? I know nothing about carbon fibre, so thanks for your patience!

|I have a couple of carbon bikes and I wax them all the time. All my frames have a clear coat finish so wax is not a problem. The BB has an alloy shell so it's no different than installing in a aluminum frame|

|You can always wax a carbon bike, but if the frame is bare carbon (sometimes called a "nude" finish) there should be some protection from UV. Several products exist.|| |
