    Easton Seatpost Help

    Having a problem with the stock easton seatpost and stock santa cruz qr on my heckler. On every ride the seatpost keeps on slipping down. Tried to tighten the qr but to no avail. I am afraid to over tighten the qr.

    Thanks in advance

    Try some carbon friction paste. I've also heard a little toothpaste will work as well.
    Just ask your LBS if you can have a little tear packet of carbon paste. That's what
    I did.

    '02 NRS - it's the one that came with the bike, I hope it is the right size.

    mestapho - will try the toothpaste route and when I get a chance to go to an LBS I'll pick up the paste.

    Thank you again for your responses.

    Dont go putting toothpaste on your bike when its designed to take carbon friction paste, just pickup the correct thing you need.

    I had the same exact problem on my BLT2. I used friction paste and it still slipped. I eventually got a Thompson with a little more texture. The friction paste helped. Some other guys changes SP clamps and had it solve the problem. Those easton posts are so smooth.
    Narrow is the path to life, few are those who find it.
