    silver post on carbon frame?

    Every pic of the new carbon Mojo has a black seatpost. Would it be "insane" to put a silver post? I like silver posts. Stay new looking longer. Would match the silver cranks. Guess I don't want the darth vader look...and I can find a better deal on silver 31.6 posts.

    Anyone have a pic of a mojo with a silver post?

    Go a silver Thomson post and a silver Thomson stem, that would look great. The silver stems look rad in the flesh

    Blue Frame...Nothing works

    It is good to have a choice of silver seat posts. The truth is the Ibis colors appear to have been developed by some sweetheart who worked in the fashion industry and wears a baby blue puff ball down ski parka when skiing. I really don't think black componets work well on any of the colored frames (except for carbon black). Long Live Black!

    I wouldn't hesitate to use a silver post, especially a silver Thomson on the Mojo as long as there is some other silver, like a stem, rims, or cranks. If I didn't use the red one, I was going to use slver.

    I actually emailed Thomson at one stage asking about durability of the black compared to silver. They said that the black post would stay better looking for longer.

    Both colors are anodized and the finish is tough. I think in general the silver would show scratches more than the black.
