Default Look KG461 Ergopost 2 compatibility

I'm putting together a NOS KG461. It uses an internal wedge clamp for the
seatpost. Anyone know if the Look Ergopost 2 will work or will the wedge
crush the carbon?

I have a hard time believing LOOK would make something not applicable
to their own frameset(both in existence at the same time) BUT A wedge
like that is generally a bad idea.

For the archives. Heard from Look:
The ergopost 2 will work just fine. In addition to greasing the bolt

threads, make sure you put a little grease on the surfaces of the wedge so

that they will not bind and cause you to over-tighten the bolt. The correct

torque for this bolt is 12-15 NM.
