No worries on the grass/patio.....who's got time to mess around with the yard when they are building/riding bikes??!!

Seatpost is USE Alien Aero Carbon. Picture doesn't do it justice as you can't really see how aero it looks

That bike looks wicked. Just as a word of note. John Cobb tested these aero seatposts and saw no advantage in the wind tunnel

The only thing that I didn't like about the Diablo was the skinny 27.2 post that looked at odds with the rest of the frame so I decided to fit an Alien Aero for aesthetics and I'm really pleased with how its turned out. It's quite light and easy to fit if you get the correct size clamp arrangement for your saddle rails.

I've been out on it again this morning for a quick blast and I'm loving it :D .
I read a few reports that they were harsh but I don't agree, It feels the same if not better than the Storck Fenomalist I swapped all the components off.

I agree with your decision there...I always thought that massive junction with a skinny seatpost popping out looked silly.
