Im sure everyones seen the 6kcycles seatpost as its been talked about a lot here. Has anyone ordered one of these posts / post& clamp combos from Mr.Ride ? They seem like the same design, with better mounting hardware .

The 6K cycles aluminum post was less than 120g (can't remember the size) but the cradle was razor thin. Wouldn't trust it with carbon rails.

Took about a week for delivery to California.

The cradle is not much.. but I plan to use it with my steel railed Arione, at least initially.

hmm, I have a specialized s-works toupe carbon railed saddle. Are you suggesting not to use the 6kcycles or mr.ride posts?

I do not know - if you look at the cradles, there is very small rail contact areas on all the ultralight clamps.

On the other hand, I see plenty of people using them with carbon railed saddles - at least in pictures!
