    Torque for Ritchey Carbon Pro seatpost?

    Ritchey's site was not helpful. Google was not helpful. Oddly enough, a link to BF shows up but still, no torque spec. Thanks in advance!

    According to the Ritchey site, the torque value for your seatpost should (may) be engraved on the post. The number will be expressed in NM (Newton Meters).

    Hope that helps.

    "tight enough so component won't move, without exceeding max torque listed on component".

    Ah, good to know. To be honest, I'm scared of taking it out and not finding a spec!
