This'll probably get voted cold as it's pretty much un-needed for your average push bike. But any cycle fans will realise this is a pretty good deal. Full carbon seatpost (27.2mm) for £10.53! Was £29.26 so 70% off. I bought 2 and seem well made, although I've not had a chance to test durability. But for £11 each I thought it would be worth a punt!

Is the purpose of this just to save a bit extra weight? Does it make much difference compared to the weight of the post on my MTB?

Will smooth the ride a little if using bike on the road.
I have bought one as a spare for my road bike even though its too small so will have to get a shim too.

Thanks OP repped.

Will this lower my carbon ****-print?

That's a frupping bargain! Heat + kudos added!

Wow! Well done mate, heat!

This is carbon fiber http://www.modbargains.com/images/Products/Power%20Slot/Carbon_Fiber_Fabric_Twill_2x2.jpg

"Fabric made of woven carbon filaments"

Then you add resin and make a shape of what ever and cook. Then it's rock hard and light =).
#12
Is this for road use or MTB?


Thanks
#13
Not a bad price. I hope the quality is good.

Can be used for either. Only comes in 27.2mm size though, so if your current post is bigger you'll need a shim for it to fit your bike. Shims are usually £5 ish.

Can see people getting one then finding out there bike is a 26.8, but you should get your money back on ebay.
#16
Yeah, mine's a 26.8 - otherwise I'd have bought one.

Ive got a specialized pitch pro.


anyone any idea what size post is needed for the pitch or where id find out what i need?


Thanks

Nice work. Just bought one for my Trek, my first carbon component Woop!

I think Specialized mountain bikes have a larger seat post, over 30mm I think. This is really a road bike seat post, you wont see huge benefits on an MTB.

* Weight: Only 240gms.
* 300mm length.
* Usable length 230mm.


I was initially very impressed by the price

I realised that with additional cost and weight of the shim, the combined weight would be the same as a good alloy (Easton 50 or 70) but without the fitting problems (dont crush it with your your quick release! ) and only really of benefit for a hard tail where the carbon will help a little to soak up the bumps.
It also lacks a useful usable length for a mountain bike (only 23cm exposed !).

Also seems that Carbon seatposts are about 100 grams lighter these days (circ 150gms), which explains why I suspect this would not sell for much more.

Still a very good buy for a racer and voted hot for that reason.

Might well tell you on the pitch pro what size it is if you take it out of the bike.

I've got one on both my bikes, one road one mtb. One on my mtb gives a nice bit of bling if not much else!!

Is your MTB a hardtail - and do you not notice any softening effect?
Does it make your road bike ride a bit more comfy?

More infor would be useful/interesting thanks.

Sorry, only got the posts through the other day and have just fitted them. Not managed a test ride yet, but will post up if I notice any big inprovements. MTB is hardtail steel btw.

I only want it for a bit of bling really:roll: :w00t:


Taken the post out ..cant see anything.....Ill just wait until it arrives.

If you are of a certain size and weight do not be riding anything carbon, the resin will only stay strong for a season, which at £11 a pop you can't complain, I've been told never ever to ride carbon at all, I'm not overly overweight but I ride my bike like it's a tank, I go through chains and bbs like there's no tomorrow, and strangely carbon won't stand up to my needs, but alas, for your everyday use a carbon pin should last you a couple of years, if you damage it in anyway shape or form, replace it, as soon as carbon is inherently brittle, and when resin is damaged it can lead to some very painful experiences, but at £11 for a 27.2 pin (My F2000 and Lampre Team Issue(A proper Lampre, not a Willier) both use 27.2, you can't grumble at!

But H+R, dead cheap!

Spot on, if your going to hammer it it's titanium all the way!

Good advice.

I saw a crash between two roadies on a tight triathlon course (neither would give way to the other) and it ended in a lot of broken carbon and a nasty mess.
I've now seen what a £400 pair of carbon areobars split in two does to a chap .... its not a pretty sight.
#29
I wouldn't touch cheap carbon, it really is cheap for a good reason. Unless you want a cheap way to fill your A-hole with carbon shards :w00t:

If you just want a cheap carbon post for the sake of it then fair enough.

Word of warning, do not grease carbon posts! (this should be used but costs almost as much as the post)
#30
Amazing deal.

Not the lightest carbon post about though, should only really be viewed as a bit of a shock absorber if you are replacing any half decent alloy post.

Some other useful bits on that site too. Good price for bar plugs, brake cables and jockey wheels. Well that's what I ordered anyway!

Toothpaste is a cheap alternative, the grittyness of it does exactly the same thing as the stuff in the link.

Booo - payment screen went to 'cannot find server' after entering all my card details. Did it go through? Do I try again? Who knows? Hot Deal - shoddy site.

Happened when I tried again too! Is it just me?

Specialized bikes use 30.9mm posts.
Carbon parts are great on hardtails for vibration damping, I use Carbon bars/stem/post/forks on my XC bike.
I crushed my old Easton EC70 carbon post & went back to a highish end alloy one, two weeks later I was back on a Ritchey WCS 1 bolt carbon post as the aluminum one was too harsh feeling.
At least this one is a bit over built by the weight & not just an alloy post wrapped in carbon like some cheap posts, good cheap upgrade.
Don't believe the hype that Carbon snaps easily, they are as strong/stronger than most aluminum parts when used in the correct way.

It does say usable length 230mm, so unless that's 230mm +120mm being left in the frame making it a 350mm, it's a very short post.
#35
230mm useable and 300mm overall. You're left with 70mm in the seat tube if you have it set at minimum insertion. Is just big enough for my MTB, but might be worth checking if you have a lot of post showing normally.

Can update, I had a 35 mile test run today on my road bike. I felt a big difference to my original alloy (Cannondale C3) post. much less road buzz transfered to the saddle and made for a much comfier ride. Must state as well that the Cannondale post was 31.6 and this is 27.2, so that would prob help with the comfort too. First ride so obviously no issues with durability, but I believe the carbon should be just as strong as alloy. As long as you don't overtighten the clamp and use the correct gel when fitting.

I've just ordered another 2 for when the current ones come to the end of their life!

Never had any probs ordering, and must say that delivery had been pretty prompt too.
#36
Ordered yesterday for my Giant OCR 3 road bike. They posted yesterday too. Hopefully get it tomorrow. Good find and lots of useful advice on here. Thanks.
