    Good one. They look pimp, I'm just not sure I could get past the fear of being violated with shards of carbon, but that's just me. I'm sure they'll hold up better than the Eastons I've heard about, given their intended use.

    I was drinking water when I read that, and I practically spit all over. After that statement, I don't think I'd ever consider a carbon seat post.

    He said the seat was posted. He didn't say the seatpost splintered.

    Was NOT a carbon post... i repeat NOT a carbon post.... but it WAS an equally retarded idea. it was an I-Beam set-up and the I-beam snapped and gave a nice slash to his sack...

    Carbon is ok, so long as it's in low stress areas.

    I guess is really tough for me to believe that a carbon for DH will be any lighter than a standard aluminum post. I'll be sticking with my tried and true Thomson. If your really looking for weight, I'm sure you could get a Thomson Masterpeice for the same price as that burgtec

    Begs to ask the question, "is it lighter than a thomson?"
