There have been quite a few complaints on BikeRadar about seat tube cracks from the VCLS 1.0 and 2.0 seatposts flexing.

If you're having this issue, which seat post did you use and how much do you weigh?

One of my mates has just started cracking down the seattube.

Response was basically "its not a stressed area, so can't crack there..."

Computer says no.....

Uh oh. Better ask Canyon if they can send you the new larger seatpost clamp that they've been sending with the warranty replacements.

Same here, 79kg's vcls 2.0. Loads of carbon paste, no cracking and seatpost doesn't lower (anymore). 5nm is really needed to keep it in place.
