Possible clamping problems with 27.2mm seatposts

Mr Crud contacted us at the weekend posting a thread on the forum to report a potential problem for some users of the first batch of '09 Raceguards.

According to Mr C “.the first batch had some tolerance problems resulting in a less-than-perfect clamping to the seatpost”. Most likely to be affecteted are any of you fitting them to 27.2mm seatposts, but Mr C wants to hear from anyone who's having clamping problems on one of those first batch of Raceguards if you are you having clamping-related problems you can contact him via his website www.crudproducts.com.

We have got one of the new Raceguards in for test – so far no problems to report.


Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
