Super light and works great for droppers
- I've put it through the wringer
The dropper post on my MTB was getting severe stiction with the seatpost clamp that came with the bike, even at low torque settings and it wouldn't hold the post securely at those low torques either. The seat tube is just slightly out-of-round (but within tolerance). I read Bike Yoke's engineering explanation and it made sense to me. As Bike Yoke says, the clamp doesn't have a continuous metal collar around the top, instead it has three metal tabs to keep the clamp from sliding down the seat tube. They claim the design distributes the clamping force much more evenly than a standard clamp with a continuous collar. Sometimes these kinds of explanations are just hype, but I'm very pleased to say not in this case. It really worked! No more stiction on the dropper post and the Squeezy holds the post in the frame very securely. It really works very well for me. Bonus is, it weighs next to nothing. I bought a second one for my road bike. So why four stars not five? Because you have to be VERY careful using a good torque wrench and good technique to tighten down the clamp. This clamp really does seem to put a lot of force on the seat tube and seatpost at lower torques than other standard design clamps I've used -- I could feel that in my hands while twisting the torque wrench. I started at a low torque (well below the max), and increased it gradually as I tested the seatpost for security. I usually just stick a clamp on and tighten it to the max but not with this clamp. Additionally, some people have complained it didn't work well for them but it was because their seat tube or seatpost tolerances were not good enough. All in all, it's a great clamp but requires good frame and seatpost tolerances, and careful installation. Oh, and I love that it uses a Torx head screw and did I mention, it weighs next to nothing!
