    Easton EC70 Carbon post bolt torque spec.

    Anyone has the torque spec for the Easton EC70 Carbon seatpost bolt (Bolt that tightens the post to the frame) ?

    I looked all over the Easton website and they don't specify the torque spec.

    I just bought one myself, and am wondering what that flat groove at the back is for other than to let dirt and water into your frame ?

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I am less than impressed with this post.

    Issues I've had so far:

    - First ride the post slid and resulted in scratches
    - I have it torqued around 70 in.lb. The contact edge with the frame is forming a groove and it's starting to reach down to the fibers. The frame edges are smooth. I smoothed them out with sand paper.
    - Clamp requires re-greasing more than usual or else it creaks.
    - Easton customer service is horrible. I went back and forth with them about this post for weeks and basically got nowhere.
