    Bolt Torque for American Classic Seatpost?

    Hi, I just bought this seatpost and installed it, and I'm noticing that it loosens in a 20 mile ride. Does anyone know if there are specific torque settings that will result in teh seat clamp and angle adjust screws staying tight?

    Found the answer, think I'll share. The AmClassic website has the instruction sheet on line as a pdf.

    you need to set the saddle angle with the small bolt, then secure the clamp by torquing the big bolt to 12 foot pounds. I found the angle can shift slightly, so a bit of experimenting is necessary.

    Haven't ridden it yet, however!
