FSA Carbon Seatpost

From James:
FSA post on a Marin Mount Vision. Going over a fairly small (c.18” bump), seated and slow.... a little creak... then a full-scale snap! Just outside warranty too. And no, I didn’t impale anything!

Carbon post on a mountain bike is not a good idea.
Carbon post on a full suspension mountain bike is a really bad idea.
