Just picked up a secondhand USE Alien carbon post for my RC300 from fleaBay but it didn't come with a manual.

Can anybody help with the maximum torque setting cuz I don't wanna crush it?

Thanks ;)

No idea on the actual torque setting but I've found you really don't have to do the 3mm allen bolt up very tight for it to hold the saddle securely so don't go mad tightening it up.

Thanks for the reply but it's not the seat clamp torque I'm after, I know what that is, it's maximum of 5nm. I'm after the max torque for the seat post clamp so I don't crush/damage the actual carbon post ;)
