I prefer the Mcfk to the Ax-Lightness post. The design is pretty similar, but in my opinion the build quality on the Mcfk is better than on the Ax. Also Mcfk has better customer service after the sale. The other WW posts that come to mind with a 3k weave on the outside are the Schmolke and the new Tune (which I believe is made by Mcfk)

Hi guys, thanks for your response's the Ax has a weight limit of 75kg and I'm 6'3" and 81kg so I'm above that limit,

The MCfk is ideal iv found one on a German website so I'll have to se if they ship to the uk

+1 with the MCFK stuff, they have great after sales service..
I have a seat post clamp I got from a friend who ordered the wrong size.. It was a 15mm tall version and my parlee needs a 12mm. A small crack formed where the to of the frame finished.
Martin shipped me a 12mm clamp for 30€.. :mrgreen:

I got myself a carbon token seatpost . I sanded the decals off and with the amount I chopped off it comes in well under a 100grms.

I live in the UK and no issues with posting.

How do I measure the seat post diameter, it's saying 25mm but I can only find listings of 27-5 and 30mm?
