hi folks, got a MINT Time VXRS Ulteam frame, with the ISP and all.
But, changing seat height, at 4Nm (with 5Nm max on written on the piece) the damn collar snapped!
After a quick google search, i found that I'm not the only one, and it's a kind of faulty piece. The alu wall are SO thin it's amazing. For the moment, i just used a nice Campy clamp i had laying aroud. 4Nm, and everything seens nice and solid.
I emailed Time, and found a replacemente in CRC. But for 50 bucks, would I be in a bad position buying any other reliable clamp? The only difference I can see in the Time one is a little notch so the clamp stays in place. Found a thread here linking to the BTP one, but I'm not buying that one....
I believe it would NOT be a problem, but since I'm not a expert, better safe than sorry. I just don't want to buy another original one, and have that one snap in my face again.
