I suppose you could file down the yokes to match the angle of the rails.


Good point. The rear clamp has a nice angle. The front clamp is not parallel/normal to the rails. I suspect it would be difficult to file, as the relevant surface is curved: filing could well end up reducing the contact area rather than increase it.


Doug the rear bolt looks a bit too long. It would stink to damage your saddle on a hard bump.

Well, the saddle doesn't flex that much, but I agree: that's a stock KCNC bolt, and it's too long for this post.

Have you test rode the setup yet?? I'm very tempted to do this to my thomson post as well...I have a slr carbonio saddle and I am a 'lil concerned about sharp edges cutting into the carbon rails.

That would bring down my cut post to 118g and be way cooler than my old KCNC.

Any idea when this kit will be available? Also would it be suitable for off road too? BTW very excellent looking.

That's the same weight savings I got from the KCNC hardware. Very impressive.

I inspected the saddle rails with my finger to look for nicks, and didn't find any from the KCNC. Kevin @ Bike Nüt recommended Al tape on carbon rails to help protect them from KCNC clamps. I'm going to try this as well.

That kit should be avaidable this month or in 1-2 weeks. In fact some people are already using it. Comparing to KCNC it has a full support for the rails.

Well like I mentioned I just picked up a Masterpiece post and would love to test out this new carbon set up with ti bolts. Let me know when I can buy a set or even test a set which I still do not mind paying for. There is nothing like testing these out on the west coast of Canada on the killer hills we have here. I might even put another set on my road build if it works out great.

Cheers.

I think the version that you posted does not come with the ti bits and the other version does which I hope will be about the same price if possible.

I know that but then you have to buy them from someone else and pay extra shipping. If someone can offer all of it at once, it helps.
