Felix, what sort of weight + riding is this post used for....and has it held up? (I'm thinking of doing it on mine which is MTB mixed trail use and I weigh 77kg).
I'm thinking of the filed-down carbon part.
[Nice work by the way!]

Hi theremery,

I am ~68-69kg, and never used the post for racing. The only thing i worried about, was the halfpipe, but it held up. I haven't had any kind of troubles with the post (used it for about 3-4000km), but switched to an AX Daedalus, because i wanted to have some setback.

Cheers

Anyone any idea where to order aluminium beams (titanium 'rails')?
