You really don't need it that tight.
All its doing is holding the cassette on. Its not structural or anything.
I rode the Full Tilt Boogie Mk2 just now. Oh man.
I'd forgotten what a rocketship that thing is. Stiff. Light(ish). Comfortable. The ONLY fly in the ointment is it got ordered without bottle cages. I either have to be a fred and wear a camelback or shove bottles in my jersey pockets.
Oh well. Its a small sacrifice to ride something that nice.
Note to Askel: its not a very good long-distance gravel road bike. Too stiff thru the fork/front end. Fan-farging-tastic short-distance/race bike tho.
Buddy of mine is coming over for some help working on his Stumpjumper. He should be bringing beer and pizza.
