What a useless post after OP already stated 5 posts above yours that he figured out it was the seat post. Why would you even quote and respond to the first post when OP already figured out what caused it and is past trying to figure out what caused it? Sheesh.
I responded when I read the first post, because it was so obvious what had happened to anyone who had two eyes. But the OP hadn't figured it out, he'd needed someone to tell him because (sorry Shrike) he's clearly a bit special in the mechanical sense. So better to mention it than potentially keep him in the dark. Did you read the bit about him learning that the torque on a seatpost was 8nm not 12nm? Who do you think told him that?
Think you'll find it was me. Sorry about that, I guess it would have been better to let him crush a few more seatposts then make a complete tit out of himself by suing Cervelo over ser error, like he said he was going to.
Whereas bitching about two people saying the same thing? Wow, that's not pointless at all. No way, you just did important work here on the internet today. Keep it up!
Of course I'm going to check it regularly until I get it fixed after the summer. Goes without saying.
Dude, when it comes to you and your questions about absolutely freakin' everything, nothing goes without saying.
This guy takes himself too seriously. I make an obvious joke about suing Cervelo for my seatoost cracking and he's bring it up here like I'm actually going to sue them. The thread was about doing a self-repair
Initial response was to sue Cervelo to the balls. By time I got home I figured I'd just get some glue or something instead.
Who on earth would sue a company over a £130 cracked seatpost. More time in the real world and less on the internet being a forum warrior. Puerile internet point scoring nonsense. What is problem anyway, underachiever personality type? Lighten up and stop talking balls.
It was Cervelo who told me that the seatpost was 8 not 12.

to me ,
It looks like this damage is the result of over-tightening the clamp.
The clamp should be tightened to a maximum of 8Nm, not 12 (see page 49 of the attached Owner's Manual)

Sorry where exactly did you tell me about the seatpost torque? Just making up internet points now instead of scoring them? This is your only 'contribution to that thread.
Initial response was to sue Cervelo to the balls.....
...Torque seemed to work too, using 12nm.
Kids these days
if the cracked area is above the top of the seat tube
It's not above the top of the seattube, it's where the wedge clamp has crushed the carbon through overtightening.
