I'm wondering how hard I can torque down the seatbolt to prevent slipping - some of this need for tightness is the frame and the recessed bolt, but I'd like to know the spec on the seat post too just to be safe.

    We don't have one hard and fast spec because of all the variables (frame material, post material, etc) however I wouldn't go above 5/6nm on a carbon post or 6/7nm for an alloy post. I would also make sure the diameter of the seat tube is correct.
    Also, yeah, make sure you use a generous amount of fiber grip.

    "Any suggestions for preventing the cable connector from rattling against the top tube on my Ritchey Breakaway Cross? The cable connector rattles every time I go over a rough surface and it could get quite annoying on a bumpy road or trail. The connector has a black rubberized band around one end of it, but it is not enough to prevent the rattling. I have temporarily surrounded it with electrical tape and a rubber spacer to see if that helps."

    The previous quote was posted a while back and I too have had problems with the cable connectors rattling. I find that the rubber rings that came with the bike are not sufficient in preventing rattling. I found some larger rubber o-rings at Home Depot in the Plumbing Dept. for $2.29 (for 10 0-rings). They work great. They are larger and the brake o-ring rubs the frame, but I have Frame Saver tape (awesome stuff - buy at ColoradoCyclist.com) so my paint is protected. Hope this helps!

    Will the break-away steel be seeing updates anytime soon? Maybe the integrated headset, new colors?

    I would love to re-paint my stem and seat post to color match my charcoal road logic - anyone know the PPG code or similar?
