|I stripped my seat collars threads!!! I just bought a Syncros carbon seatpost and was making adjustments. I was trying to tighten it because it was slipping after hitting many cracks and pot holes on the road. i cleaned off all the grease from the seat tube, as far as my fingers could reach anyway.
its a Syncros carbon seatpost 27.2 and a schwinn fastback pro
what seat collar do you guys recommend? i bought both from supergo you think they would help me out? is there anything else i can do to help keep the seatpost from slipping

|Campy makes a clamp that provides more even forces around the circumference of the post.
Check with your LBS for the correct size.
No grease on a CF post.
Remain In Light.

|Grease and carbon don't mix. clean out yourseat tube real good. Perhaps a collar with fine threads, or a quick release type would work. This is a common problem with slippage when using grease on a carbon post.|| |
