    Impressive weight for sure. $350 for a rigid seatpost is a little far out there for me.

    Interesting brand for sure, starting to pop up on some bikes so will be good to see and hear from people who use them how they hold up etc.
    R2-Bike posted a 8,495kg S-Works Epic the other day for example with lots of Darimo parts.

    Darimo, and Grigio Carbonio, are both pushing even brands like Schmolke when it comes to weight. The latter still feels a bit safer to buy though, since they've been around so long and you can find reviews and know they have good customer service.

    The weight on these rims for example is extremely tempting, but also a little bit scary (coming from someone already riding 300g rims haha).

    Been looking at GrigioCarbonio recently, after coming across some builds on the Italian light-bike forum.

    My wallet is more suited to the LightBicycle flyweight rims though!

    Well, I had 3 Schmolke bars, and broke 2 (not crashed).
    Since they do not focus any more on mtb, and materials evolved much over the last two years, from my experience Darimo is much safer.
    I raced Roc d'Azur marathon & feel this bar is as safe as EC90... even not confortable.
    I've heard they never had a single bar broken. Nor seatpost.

    Aouch, too bad to hear about the Schmolke bars!
    Perhaps I wasn't clear that I really don't expect Darimo to be bad, quite the opposite, just that it often feels a bit safer to buy parts from brands that you've heard or read some comments about based on user experience.
    So thanks for that little review, exactly what I wanted to read.

    I really like the clamping design on the seat post and the finish on the product looks great as you say. And weight is amazing, those bars are around 10g lighter than Schmolke 720mm's I've weighed.

    Got my post today. Well worth the weight. 25.4 with a 26.8 shim 250 long.
    Shame people have stopped making/selling seat posts other than 27.2, 31.6

    Can't tell from the pics above, but is the seatpost inner diameter offset/scalloped a little to give some flex?

    Would be interested to hear if there is a bit of flex in these posts.

    At those weights, the walls are probably so thin that you don't need to design any flex into the post, its going to flex like crazy anyways.

    Well, one could say It should flex considering the feather light weight. it flexes a bit more than my MCFK (which was rather monolithic) but to be honest, this flex does not give any confort zone...
    this is for my 31.6. As for 27.2 I do not know, but logicaly it will flex a bit more. So far Darimo never had a seat post nor any handlebar failure.

    We have the same feeling about safety Guilhom
    Furthermore, Darimo can custom tune their handlebars, we can consider that for your next setup improvements if there is any. We can discus it in PM if you wish to.

    I am trying to order a set of their bars, and a custom seatpost. No reply from the webpage email, or facebook.

    the wall thickness on my post vary a bit as the finish is a little rough on the inside, but are around 1.2mm - 1.9mm so they might have thicker front/backs to the posts

    They got back to me. They are building me a seatpost that is 325mm that has falls between the 300 and 350mm options. I was not comfortable getting a post designed to one height only.

    So i was drooling over this post again (waiting for my darimo stuff) when i noted a detail... the post was 3k weave, and sanded for the matt appearance... but not in the area arounf the seatpost positioning lines.

    Did darimo do that? Is that the matt finish? It looks great!

    That's to let you know where to position the post and is more reinforced . MCFK do the same thing

    The height of this clamping zone can be customized from Darimo, they offer bespoke seat post if you only wish 2cm or need a wider zone, on custom seat post length of course.
    how cool is that ?
