Had an AL frame crack that I was running a 31.6mm race face carbon post on it. I'm replacing the frame with a steel frame that has a 27.2mm seatpost. I'd like to run a carbon post (prolly another Race Face, loved it) to keep the weight down and make the already smooth ride even smoother. My only concern is that running a carbon post will be TOO flexy. I'm 6'2" 235lbs riding a 19" frame, so theres some seatpost exposed, not a ton, but enough. I know the steel frame will ride well, regardless of the seatpost used. I'd prefer the carbon, but would it be better to run a nice AL post? Thoughts?
