FSA K-Force Seatpost Problem
I just got a new K-Force seatpost, the 32mm setback version. I installed it, but did not have a torque wrench, so I tightened it down, tight. Riding today, it made a popping sound, then dropped all the way back (my voice is an octave higher, but otherwise I am ok). I adjusted it again, 20 miles later, same thing. Is there some trick to adjusting these? They have a a two-bolt tightening system like a Thomson (which I would have bought if they had one with the setback I need). Beyond torquing it down to the exact specs, is there some trick to setting these up? I am sure I had it at least as tight as they suggest. Thanks in advance, my crotch can't take another experience like the last two.
