stripped 25 mm seatpost collar(2 posts)

stripped 25 mm seatpost collarJS Haiku Shop

ok, so during the look build, i overtightened the seatpost collar and stripped the female threads. took a collar off a an unbuilt frame with a 27.2 mm seatpost, and it has worked ok so far (<10 miles test rides). do i need to be concerned that the seatpost collar is too large and will eventually slip, or is it not an issue?

TIA

One problem I can think of is that when properly tightened, a 27.2 collar is pretty round on a 27.2 post. But once tightened to 25mm, it's no longer round and not applying even pressure. If the post does slip, it might carve scratches on the post.
