I am looking at getting a few parts from them, do they hold up well? I am looking at the ft der clamp, shifter band clamps and a couple seatpost clamps

I'm using his seatpost collar for a few months now. The finish is very nice and indicates he has a serious amount of attention for details. They work just like a collar need to work, and hold up so far so good. 1 recomendation is to use some grease on the bolts for a more smooth and quite installation.

Yup, finish is top-notch:
Used the seatpostclamp for about a year.
So far so good :thumbup:

what is the height of the collar?

my custom SS frame has an internal sleeve and there is only about 14mm of tube to slide the clamp on

These clamps are available in several heights options. For instance I use the 12mm clamp on my Scott addict, which measured 11 or 13mm..

I have bought parts like derailleur clamps, a seat clamp, and seatpost parts for my modified ISP seatpost from MCFK. I like the design and the finish of the parts and Martin is very kind and has helpful suggestions if you want custom-made parts. My 34.9 x 350 seatpost also just arrived yesterday and I'm very happy with the weight, only 99.6g! :thumbup:

custom parts for my Scale ISP frame (frame stripped, now with minimalist sticker design and clear top coat):

weight includes small frame with ISP (length similar to max exposed length of a 350mm seatpost), modifed cable stops and derailleur hanger.

and my new seatpost for my non-ISP frame with KCNC M5 yokes:

I haven't finished building both my V-brake and disc-brake bikes as I am waiting for some parts to arrive. I've been waiting for IS-post mount adapters from Eliflap too, the only parts missing for my disc-brake bike.

I'm using a MCFK ISP stubby on my Addict and it's good stuff. I've only had it for about a month, but there's no squeaking and no slippage. +1 for Martin @ MCFK!

Sorry, no. I'm still using it. I'm even looking for one more.

Hi there,
I'm now looking to buy a MCFK seatpost, but I got a doubt...
From the bike, to the bottom of the rails I need around 206mm.
And so I can choose to stay on the upper limit of the 300 mm version, or go with the 350mm and have it all the way down (the lower limit)
I've asked the question to a bike shop and to mcfk and got to different answers.
What do you reckon?
I was considering the 300mm but am affraid the clamp might tighten outside the specified area...

thanks for your help

you can have stuff custom made by MCFK. i had a seat topper done with a custom size. great job and good communication. was only a little more than what the seat toppers were going for on his website.

I would love to kit my new build out with a load of MCFK kit but unfortunately finances will not allow. They are my favourite carbon producer (with the exception of Berk) I love the finish and attention to detail

Been using the der. clamp and seatpost collar for about 3 yrs now, not a single issue. I'm 90kg, so the collar does get some stress :).. UD finish is beautiful, and its required no maintenance at all.
