I spun the front tube in traffic today trying to take off from a light.
Ended up breaking the cleat on my shoe and then peddling home 10 miles with one pedal.
This is the fifth or sixth time this has happened. Second time in traffic at this exact light.
The clamp is so tight I need to use an extension bar to close it, yet the tube still spins if you put a bunch of torque on the pedals.
How do I fix this?
I asked this exact question via e-mail directly, the day after I got zoomer, and two days later.
It's been 4 weeks and still no response.
Do you see any structural problems with drilling a hole in the two tubes and putting a bolt through?
Maybe drill a hole and ream it with a taper reamer. Then drive in a taper pin.
That way the pin would be force fit tight leaving no slop to grow the hole.
