You can find a guy who works with carbon and he will make the seat-tube in height you need. It will be great if you have the piece which was cutted
It should not cost more then 50 euros and here our guy make it so good nobody can find where it was putted together


No I don't have the cutter piece and I don't see how the longer seattube can repaired and still look nice.

Is there any saddles out there that doesn't look shit?
Does any have the hight on e.g fizik arione?

Btw how much to you stretch your legs?
I stretch till I only have approx. 10• left.

This is an official product and solution from Look. It did not exist when 595's first came out, and perhaps not that many people know about it.

I'll leave you to look into it further.

Quick attempt at some analysis:
Using Roark's formulas for stresses in a thin-walled tube (seatpost), with a concentrated radial load (seat clamp) at 2.5" from the end, all stresses due to the clamp have fallen to 1/100th of the stresses at the clamp when only .5" away from the clamp.

I looked at it and it is an possibility but at a price if 300$ in us means that with shipping and taxes that it is just too expensive. I will look other ways for another frame. Simply it either becomes too expensive or too complicated with seat heights and limited as well.

Such a shame.

Perhaps a silly suggestion, but do you know your optimum seat height?

Perhaps what you think is optimum is actually to high? Could you try it lower and see how you get on?

Nope I don't to be honest, but that is my consideration as well if I can ride it lower without loosing anything.

Would you recommend it and how do I find my optimal hight?

I have an older Arione and it measures about 5.5, I don't know if they've changed over the years, I got mine in '07 or so.
