The design is prone to slipping and is just plain poorly thought out IMO. I seen a pic somewhere with one set up in a two bolt design but I can’t remember where now. Mine slipped on the third ride out about 40 miles from home which was fully awesome, it’s now tighter than I’ve ever done a 5mm(?) Allen key ever in my life and I’m still struggling to trust it. Give me a two bolt Tomson styleee any day, I wouldn’t mind so much if it was lighter but it’s also shit :noidea:

Guess it's just yours then, mines been solid as a rock and never slipped. Are you using a torque wrench or just tightening by feel?

There’s no point using a torque wrench when I’m physically doing the bolt as tight as feel I can get it without wrecking something... but yeah, did first time, calibrated 1/4 drive Snap-On, next time I’ll use the 1/2 drive :lol:
