You are certainly not going to break Titanium. Use as many as nickels as possible. And make sure you like your saddle, you don't ever want to do it again.P-Funk said:OK, I need to revive this thread as I've just bought my first Moots seatpost. I've read all of the threads and I've used the coin method, but even using nickels, my screws are as far as they'll go and there still isn't quite enough spread. Can I double up (or even triple up) the nickels without compromising the Ti by spreading it too much? BTW, I'm trying to install a Brooks Swift. I'm not sure if they have abnormally thick rails. Also, I'm assuming I can rotate the seat forward and down in order to remove the screws from the top of the clamp after I get it in place.
