Ti rails question(3 posts)

Ti rails questionI Love Shimano
Jul 28, 2002 10:06 PM
My current saddle has manganese rails and I tighten them as much as I can. Do I have to use a torque wrench when tightening the seatclamp on the Titanium rails of my new Flite TT saddle? Can I tighten it as much as I do on a manganese railed saddle? I just want to avoid breaking teh ti rails.

Thanks!

I doubt that you would crush the rails before you broke the saddle clamp.

thanks, just wanted to make sure. I don't want to wreck a brand new saddle!
