You need to shorten that front bolt another 5-7mm else its going to poke the saddle when you get on.
Looking at it again, seems that you should swap the 2 bolts. The longer one should be at the back and the shorter one in front.
Think i will just swap them around, cutting Ti bolts is easier said than done. The reason it looks like that is because the bar/rod is meant to be angled down a little more at the front, but then it wouldn't have fit my post.
Very nice job lo5707.
BTW,happy with your Chinese saddle on longer rides? I bought the same saddle but have not done enough long rides to judge.
I find i slip around quite a bit on the smooth carbon compared to leather covered. Not quite as much flex as i had hoped for. But for £40 from ebay (China) i cant really complain too much.
Great job ! That's also a great looking saddle. Where did you get that one ?

I have the same frame and also noticed that the seat post is very heavy. I'm not willing to go to the lengths you went to, though, especially considering that this is hardly a featherweight frame in the first place. I do like the frame though. Very stiff and handles well. Also, it looks cool.
The frame is not feather weight i agree (about 1900g for frame/fork/seatpost i recall), but for £350 you can't complain too much.....hence why i bought the second seat post as it was cheap enough to give this idea a go. BUT mu build currently stands at 6.27Kg (13.8lbs) and that is before i cut the post head - Not bad i would say?
