I know there are quite a few owners on here...anybody know what the official clamping torque is on the C59 with the Colnago seat collar? Not printed on mine. Can't remember what I used before!

Use carbon paste and do not exceed 4.5Nm in my experience.

First time I went for a ride on mine I under-torqued out of fear and my post slid down 100mm inches on my ride. Fortunately it didn't leave a mark.

When using carbon paste it is not necessary to reach the max torque specifications.

I use a Park Tool TW-5 and start at 3Nm, and work my way up to 4.5 in 0.5 increments.
