Just got my first carbon bars (Easton Havoc), and I know to put the friction paste at the stem. But my question is do I need to use the friction paste with the grips, brakes, and shifter too? Sorry if this has been asked before, but I did a forum search and I didn't see anything.

I have installed many of these bars. The only time I used paste of the the little bits was when then brakes actually could not tighten down enough to stay in place. Normally just torque and ride.

I never had my brakes move without paste
I only torque my brakes to 25 inch pounds
I am using Sworks bars that have a shiny finish
They only have moved in a bad crash
