    Easton EC90 tuning

    Hi

    Bought myself an EC90 zero seatpost. I was expecting it to be about 190 grams but my 31.6x400mm came in at 220


    BUT please, don't recommend a different post. I need something long - strong, looks good and doesnt use a flimsy design. Ive got it and im keeping it.


    I previously had a Thomson Masterpiece with the Ti bolt and Ti barrell upgrade and was going to fit these to the EC90 but the bolts are too short.

    So does anyone know where i can get the special bolts for them? There not standard ones - they have a washer on them to allow the bolt to pivot around...

    clamping parts...

    it's pretty basic:
    swap out all the heavy clamping parts and install some KCNC parts...
    this way a 31,6/350 weighs 158g

    Is the KCNC part as secure though? It looks like it's a little fraggile.....

    And where would i get those parts?

    When I broke parts on my KCNC post, I was able to get them from Fairwheel Bikes. They sold me a complete set of bolts/T clamps for $25. It might be a bit more for the cradle.

    Nino, in the third photo the post is mounted front side backwards. Do you know if it is done on purpose or by occasion?

    I wondered that too lol - made me think if i had mounted mine backwards!

    Wonder if i can get those KCNC parts in Europe......?

    How did they break - are they fragile?
