hey good looking build!

just curious about that hylix zero setback post with carbon railed saddles-- have you had any issues with the saddle cradle gouging or damaging the rails?

i have the same post and want to use for my hi mod build but it gouged the carbon rails on my sqlab saddle and i worry it will do the same to my s-works power arc!

I’m running a Smud carbon cradle instead of the Hylix one so I don’t seem to have any issues on the Berk rails, which are round

Mkae sure you get the right one for your seatpost and rails. I can't remember what mine is but it's for round rails.

If it’s a 25.4mm seatpost you’re running, you’ll probably have to ask if they can make one to fit that post

New seatpost arrived today. Darimo 25.4mm In 250mm length. I thought it might come in a bit lighter being a smaller diameter. Now to figure out this loop dohickey.

that must be because it is UD, my old 3k 27.2 x250 with the original heavier clamp was only 61g. Maybe the 25.4 has a thicker walled tube?

I was about to make a comment on that obese seatpost! :D

I hope to receive mine soon. So I am looking forward to reading any installation tips.

Make sure to keep parts aligned before tightening. And flip the saddle/seatpost assembly with saddle shell on working surface.
