The seat post clamp that came with the Flaanimal 5.0 has a max torque recommendation of 4Nm.  I would like to bring the Topeak Nano 5Nm for a biketrip as all my other bolts have 5Nm. Is the recommended torque for the clamp itself or bolt? Or is this for the maximum torque recommended given there is a carbon tube inside the metal collar?

I am not sure how far the carbon tube is placed inside the collar. Would there be any issues if I get a seat post clamp that has a 5Nm torque setting and use that?

The Flaanimal frame is extremely strong. You can safely use up to 6nm with no issues if your clamp supports it.

Thanks Steve!

Excellent. Thanks for clarifying!

Hey! Rodeo is moving!

We're taking the month of September to move into a sparkling new facility not far from where we currently operate here in Denver, Colorado. Orders and builds will continue to ship, but we may move a little slower as we work to refresh the new space and move everything over. If you have any urgent deadlines for your order, just let us know at and we will work hard to make sure your riding isn't interrupted.

Thank you!
