Conversely, if it's too tight, you run the risk of crushing the seat post and damaging your bike. The best way to tighten a seat post is to use a torque wrench. We recommend you tighten it to between 6 and 7Nm. Take care not to exceed the maximum height indicated on the seat post.

Are your pedals broken? Do you want to change your pedals for clipless ones? Here's our advice.

Please use the correct tool to take your pedals off as force needs to be exerted to unscrew them.
