  • Toker CX Quick Release Replacement

    I have a Toker CX. The original quick release is very hard to keep tight. I'm thinking about replacing it with a double bolt like this...

    I noticed the quick release on the CX is welded on. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with replacing it. Do you recommend grinding it off?

    Here's a picture of the CX...

    This doesn't answer your question, but is there no way to make the existing clamp tight enough? Releasing the lever and tightening the screw first isn't working? Replacing it doesn't look like a simple job.

      I agree with Cousin It. Ignore the lever and make it a non-quick release. Use a wrench to tighten the bolt enough that the seatpost doesn't slip and leave it. Once the adjustment is made, you don't usually need to adjust it all that often, and when you do, just use a wrench instead of the quick-release lever. You could possibly remove the lever entirely and replace it with a regular nut.
      Good luck!

        Thanks for the wrench suggestion. I will try that.

          Also, you might want to try some carbon assembly paste on the seat post.
