    Kalloy carbon seatposts, worth buying?

    I saw these carbon seatposts for sale, really reasonably priced. Anyone have any experience with them, I don' want to risk impailment over a few bucks, but there are some bargains out there.

    I got a Kalloy Uno 350 mm 31.6 Carbon post from Blue Sky a couple of months ago, and ridden it hard since then. So far no issues. Light, seems strong, no slippage, good price. I ride pretty techie and rocky stuff here in S. AZ. I am 6' tall and 170 lbs. Bike is a Cannondale Rize 2 carbon, and I sometimes put it on my Salsa El Kaboing for bigger stuff.
    It's all Here. Now.

    Kalloy has been making bike components such as stems, bars and seatposts longer than most every brand that's around today. They may not churn out super fancy but they don't churn out junk either.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread

    Not too helpful I fear, this is a VERY old set of reviews, and I am pretty sure this is not for the current carbon models. Good try tho...
