Double Busted Seatpost

From Mark:
I broke this Zeus carbon fiber seat post while transitioning from a golf cart path to the street. The uppermost fracture is from the event; while the lower fracture was made while extracting it from my Orbea Orca by my favorite bike shop in Peachtree City Ga, Bicycles Unlimited.

Sorry for my bad english. I am Brazilian and I found your blog randomly. I'm impressed ... these breaks scare. Here, in Brazil, everybody defends famous brands, but they think that parts of famous brands are indestructible. Wishful thinking ...

I added your blog to my favorites!

See ya!

If it broke just from hitting a pavement transition while seated it was probably over tightened by your favorite bike shop.
