Do you grease all the bolts and bearings on your bike? Do you only grease some. If you only grease some parts why do you only greese those parts? Also I undid my bolts onn my stem and some metal dust came out why did it do this would grease stop this? What are some things you should never grease?

I'm pretty sure they come loose easier if you grease them

everything whether people think of it or not. even small stuff like headtubes for integrated bearing, seat post before installation, stem bolts. it makes it go together easier, easier to replace things, stops rust from creating bonds. grease is a bikes best friend. and maybe its in my head, but it seems to roll/ride better.

Don't grease the fuck out of them though, just a small amount. I usually tap my finger in a tub of grease and then touch the bolt's threads from top to bottom in just one area, that way it goes all around it as you thread it in and isn't a lot of grease

I greased everything on my bike (reasonible parts), except for the headtube, headset, seatpost, and fork steerer tube. I might reconsider putting just a very teeny film of grease on my steerer tube just to help get my stem on if it's too tight. As for the headset, there's no point in putting grease all around the outside of the bearings and in the headtube cups, that's why they made integrated headsets in the first place. I did put a bit of grease when installing my BB bearings.

You pretty much should grease every metal on metal contacting spot except for the seat tube really.

Greasing will make things not fuse together and you can actually torque things up tighter

yep.
sealed integrated headset bearings should have grease in/on/around them.

metal to metal contact areas need grease.

No grease on your frame/axle bolts area but yes grease on the axle nuts/axles. No grease on the seat post tube but yes grease on the seat bolt clamp threads.

etc.

You don't need a lot, as mentioned but fuck yes use some.

I use grease on my seat post/tube haha. prevents it from getting rusty and makes it easier to get the seat out. I have a custom made wedge post too so I always grease that up anyway

He means no grease on that contact area so your wheel doesnt move.

No, they made those headsets as they are more user friendly, and potentially stronger having an angled contact point, plus a cleaner look.

Grease on the bearings/head tube prevent creaks and corrosion. DO NOT PUT GREASE ON YOUR STEER TUBE, your stem will slip around it easier.

I grease ANYTHING that gets pressed in, rests against more metal, or threads. (Aside from my steer tube)
