- An age-old problem… seatpost slippage
I had this problem too, also on a Gary Fisher (so a Trek really) with a Bonty post. Carbon assembly paste fixed it without needing to buy any new kit. It has gritty bits* in it that help the tube to hold the post without needing too much force, and it has goop* that stops the whole thing seizing up completely.
[Edit: yeah, that Ritchey stuff spuddle just linked to should do the trick – you can get better value than that though. I think I got some Finish Line stuff in a sale somewhere.]Posted 5 years ago
The seatpost on my Fuel EX just will not stay in place. I’m cranking the QR hard – harder than I’ve ever done on any of my previous bikes – and it STILL slips. Any ideas for solving this, apart from never sitting my fat arse down? (Aluminium frame and seatpost, by the way.)Posted 5 years ago
