    'Right genius. what happens when the post is still slipping at the required torque?

    Slipping posts are usually the result of out-of-spec or stretched seat tubes.

    You got all those nice lightweight carbon bits, and then an alloy stem?

    There's something wrong with you.








    btw, beautiful frame.
