Didn't get hurt, but my heart feels broken - i am a 72kg cat4 club rider, way below the weight limit of the seatpost (85kg), and the seatpost/bike never been involved in a crash
Now let's hope that AX can help me out on this
I would never put such a delicate piece of equipment on a bike that's treated not particularly in a silky smooth fashion. That's like asking for problems. I'm glad you're unhurt though because failure of a carbon part can be a pain in the ass (sometimes quite literally).
"You shall not, under any circumstances, acknowledge the presence of a cyclist riding a bike costing less than $4000 USD in a public place. This could be severely detrimental to your image."
Glad to hear you did not get an unexpected carbon nano colon probe.
New Black Thompson Masterpiece post and that bike is ready to roll. Stick to alu for cross. Lesson learned the hard way on my side too, but fortunately not with such an exotic piece of carbon equipment.

I just ordered a 3T Doric LTD post for my CX bike. It weighs quite a bit more than the AX but I think it will hold up well for cross racing with an Arione saddle.

Nice post, and if they replace it, I'd stick it on a road frame and get a more robust post for something you're riding off road.

Surely, it doesn't say CX!
Tell you what, I'll speak with Axel Schnura and his people, while I'm going to see him on friday at Eurobike anyway, and suggest him to replace your seat post.
I will save these photos on my laptop so the AX people can see for himself.

Thanks, really appreciate the help!
BTW just wanted to say i am not trying to say "hey we should all stop using AX products" - i love AX and have their saddles on all my bikes - and yes just sharing the story.
Bike parts unfortunately happen to break, if you don't want to ever have trouble with your bike then better not ride it
