    Seatpost holder on carbon Sight

    I have a '14 Sight carbon that has some play between the seat tube clamp and the frame. It's still in there fairly tight but I can rotate it by hand if I push hard enough. I don't know how tight this thing is supposed to be, or how it is attached to the frame, but I don't think it should be moving as easily as it is. I can't see any damage on the frame itself, and I'm wondering if this is something I should have looked at. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see how that's going to help. The seat post isn't moving, the clamp itself is moving. The red arrow is where the movement is occurring, between the clamp and the frame.

    Looks like the sleeve in the carbon frame is loose

    Correct... Sorry I am probably not using the correct terms to describe what is going on. Any idea if I can fix this, or do I need to have the LBS / Norco dealer look at it?

    If it's a frame issue, which it sounds like it is, you'll probably have to get in contact with NORCO to have the situation remedied. Please let us know the outcome...

    I'm taking it in to the dealer today so we'll set how is goes. They said based on my description they should be able to adjust the clamp to fix the problem. Thanks for the input.
