resuscitating this thread, Im having a sworks toupe installed on a dorico ltd on the weekend. I actually played a little with it earlier today and a couple of things were in my mind
1) its about impossible to use my torque wrench (a BBB like this http://bbbcycling.com/accessories/tool-boxes/BTL-73/
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) to torque the front bolt, since the wrench's head is scratching the shaft and won't fit fine in the bolt's head. even if I didnt care about scratching my post, it just doesnt seem to fit or titghten right r enough.
2) the wrench was set for 2nm torque, and in tightening the rear bolt, it seemed as I never reached the 2nm. I was scared to crush it, but now I read here it is not gonna happen, so I might try again. However - and my wrench is well calibrated for sure, Ive never had problems with stem, bars and seat tube clamps , so I have a bit of a clue of what 4nm feels like in my hand, and no way I havent put 2nm on that bolt. This issue resembles what I experienced with my previous seatpost (USE alien cyclops, the one bolt designg), it never seemed to have reached the torque because that designed also made it a bit difficult to correctly fit the wrench's key on the bolts head, no matter how much I titghtened it. once i crush the alien's bolt itself, what a pain!
since no one mentioned this issues before (problem in actually tightening the front bolt at all and chance of braking the bolt, not the rails), I must assume Im doing something wrong! again, I was just playing with it.. when doing for real, Im using carbon paste on the clamp and rails, greasing the bolts (does it have to be that much grease since they are so big?) and maybe sanding the yokes as someone suggested.
tks, and sorry for my spelling!
