Hi There,

Great looking set-up, I would like to ask your thoughts about the Beatnik seatpost.

Have you had any issues with it moving?

I have been considering to get one for myself, but I'm a little bit worried on its design that it might not hold the saddle attached properly.

Thanks

No issues with it moving. What is it about the design that has you concerned?

The part of the design that I'm concered with is the 1 screw clamp as opposed to having two screw bolts. I personally think having two bolts gives better tension to hold the seat.

ah, that's what I figured. I wouldn't be concerned because there are several 1-bolt options in the market

Don't get me wrong, I love this bike. But there is something off with the lower part of the headset, like its just not quite integrated with the fork.

I agree that it is a bit weird, but I think you'll find that it's pretty consistent with the other Thunderdomes on pedalroom. The crown race and bottom headset cup are both seated correctly; i think that's just how it looks with a Chris King headset

Are you actually in need of help with the stem? I'm sure 4.5NM for the two steerer bolts and 5 or 5.5 for the bar clamp would be sufficient

Yeah it was slipping even with 6Nm torque! I emailed them and they said that the torque is actually 14-16Nm, which seems insane, but maybe its by virtue of the stem being steel?

14-16 for the bar clamp! Steerer tube bolts are fine at 5

Wow thats very surprising. I work at a shop and with quill stems anyway I've only ever clamped the bar at like 8-10 max. thanks for the info

yeah i guess it makes sense now, the bigger the bolt (M8), the higher the torque.

It's always a pleasure to see a tastefully built fixed gear with risers - very well done!
