Welcome to SBW!


Frame sliders should be torqued to manufacturer specs. there was a post about this just the other day. I believe I read something about the torque specs being around 23 lb ft? If you search a bit, you will find it.

Welcome
I'm from the nice and snug camp. Of course, I also had one frame slider that always came loose after a day of wheelies. So I would have to nice and snug it again.

Which really pointed out the buity of proper torque specs.. but somehow there is never a torque wrench around when you need one...
