I read somewhere that an aluminum post can seize in a carbon frame, is this true? If I do use one, should carbon paste or grease be used?

I currently have a carbon post, but need a zero setback, and was advised that Thomson aluminum was the way to go.

Grease will work just fine unless the post slips, then you need the carbon assembly paste. For those who fear grease, carbon assembly paste is grease with some grit in it.
