So I decided to travel with my bike this week and to my surprise discovered that the steerer is carbon fiber. I had removed the stem from the steerer for packing but naively assumed it was aluminum like my previous bike (both have carbon forks).
I would like to reassemble this so that:
- it doesn't come apart causing a horrible crash
- I don't want to crack/damage the steerer
I do have a torque wrench with me but not my copy of Zinn, so how tight should I clamp the two stem bolts? (they are labelled 10Nm but I think that's the rating for the stem, which is probably aluminum)
