okay so my 1lb tub of Park 1000 polylube Grease just arrived. Where am i supposed to apply grease?

-stem bolts? (answered below, yes)
-stem faceplate where it attaches to handlebar? (answered below: no)
-saddle rails? (answered below, yes if creaking)

Most metal on metal contact points
-seat tube insertion area for seatposts (not carbon seatposts)
-stem bolts
-pedal threads
-BB cups
-BB spindle (not for square taper)
-Crank bolts (though I prefer Blue Loctite here)
-Seatpost clamp bolt threads
-Seatpost saddle clamp bolt(s) threads
-Skewers
-Cup and cone bearings
-Other bearings

A 1lb tub is likely to last you about 10 years

nice, keep the ideas coming!

do saddle rails need to be? i dont think so now right?

i will be getting TI spindle pedals, i have some Park Anti-Seize for that application (if you're nice, you'd help me list some applications for Anti-Seize also)~!

I grease the saddle rails where they contact the clamp. Otherwise I get creaking.

Don't grease the interfaces between the steerer tube/stem and stem/handlebar. Do grease the bolt threads and under the bolt heads.

Why not for square taper? I remember hearing this advice years back, but then when I read several manufacturers instructions (Race face I remember in particular), they had you use grease. When I bought a shimano square taper bb recently, is came with the spindle pre-greased.
