    Default Seatclamp Torque for XCR seat tube and Eriksen Ti Post

    Hi Folks,

    I’ve got a frame with an XCR seat tube with a 27.2 Eriksen Sweetpost including a plastic shim.

    I’m getting regular slippage. Just wondering what a safe/appropriate torque for the clamp bolt would be?

    Any other suggestions to stop the movement over bumpy Scottish roads?

    You might try swapping the shim before over-torquing. Cane Creek makes some really nice aluminum ones, and USE has some pretty swell plastic versions.

    I had to do this with my steel Gaulzetti. The 3T post would slip no matter what with the original shim. I pulled that out and replaced it with a Cane Creek shim and the problem went away immediately.
