    Rip 9 RDO seat post torque

    How do you keep from over torquing the seat tube? I'm having slippage but I'm afraid to really crank down on it and crack the seat tube.

    Carbon assembly paste?

    Haven't had any problem with mine, not using excess torque either.

    Could be that your post is under sized ?

    Use a torque wrench and torque to the specified amount of torque for the binder that is used.

    carbon paste for the win... I hardly have to tighten the seat binder much when using this product.

    If you have the correct seatpost diameter and the stock (or similar) seat collar you should not have slippage. Have you tried Carbon Paste?
