Funny you should mention that, I altered my seat and then snapped the bolt, I ordered some stainless ones as replacements, has been fine since.My bike had a bit of a creak and while investigating the seat post screw snapped despite being torqued, might be worth a check for your bikes it looks like a cheapo one.
Steve I think you are just pissed off at the minute, hopefully they will sort it and you can enjoy the spring and summer riding.That is a small issue, but one that has pissed me off more than a bit! I will be checking that when I go pick the bike up from the Focus dealer and get it replaced.
Good information. Thanks for the share. It may be helpful to know that stainless steels typically do not match well with aluminum. SS is reactive with aluminum, and when SS comes into contact with an aluminum base metal, the aluminum will likely corrode. SS screws are also more susceptible to galling when used with steel nuts and vice versa. A small amount of a never seize product eliminates this concern.
Yep, mine did that as well. Did it before I'd even ridden the bike. I was a little cheesed off...My bike had a bit of a creak and while investigating the seat post screw snapped despite being torqued, might be worth a check of your bikes it looks like a cheapo one.
