Nice looking build, but why no dropper post?  (won't fix your problem, but proper setup for that bike)

Yes I did, it stopped the twisting but it was still moving front and back.

1)  I think I have more than 10 posts (although I've not posted here in a while, guess I've been busy riding my bikes).
2)  FB Like (yes).
3)  I like the Carbonspeed 29+ frame CS-496.  However, if I wanted a FS frame I'd go with the CS-FS27.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday, at least those of us in the US anyway.

Don't worry.. I was going to ping you if you hadn't entered by the last day

29+ & 27+ / Ican P8 All Mountain Build/ Question for other Ican owners
« Last post by Jsquared89 on December 01, 2017, 09:24:29 AM »
I finally almost have my build completed,  took it out for it's maiden voyage,  but I quickly ran into a problem. The seatpost would not get tight enough. It would twist, make all kinds of creaky noises and slowly slide downwards. I applied some carbon paste hoping that would be the cure, but nope. Upon further inspection I discovered the seatpost tube is not uniformly sized all the way down. Near the top where the clamp goes is perfect, but further down it appears to get larger.  So when the seatpost clamp is tight, the seatpost can still rock back and forth around 2mm (estimating), pivoting where the clamp tightens.

 I emailed Linda at Ican bikes and told her pretty much but I just wrote above, along with detailed pics showing the measurements of my seatpost, and she told me this:
"The seatpost you need to use sizes 30.9mm . and the clamp 34.9"

Hi-its a ZOOM HB-875 HB875 MTB hydraulic disc brake set.  I tried using a wrench to pull the hose out...no luck...it twists in the lever but doesn't pull out.  At this point I'd just cut the hose and install new but that won't help with getting the portion of hose inside the lever out.  I'll swing by the LBS today and see if they can shed any light on the issue.

What is the model ?
Did you try to gently rotate or move the hose in multiple directions with a plier?

Perhaps WD40 or some other similar product might help loosen it.

It seems it has been over torque.
