I don't use any grease near my chainset. A light film of oil on the spindle to prevent corrosion and I'm done!

shimano says to use grease on a square taper and to use more torque on the bolt too.

If you have bought stronglight in recent years then arguably you may as well have bought shimano; plenty of stronglight cranks are made in Japan (eg by Sugino) and are made to japanese specs, very similar to shimano.

Thanks.

My Stronglight is a Stronglight 99 bought as a 52/36 double in autumn 1986 from Colin Lewis Paignton. Bought a BB to match too, but swapped it for a 651 about a year later. The 651 BB has a hollow spindle and is adjustable both sides.
