Bontrager Seatpost


From Steve:
Anyway, my contribution is nothing overly dramatic as some of the entries are by any means but it’s still busted carbon. This shot is of a friend’s seat post sometime after he adjusted the saddle height. My guess is the possible over-torque of the clamp at the old height. Just a guess; either way, it failed.
Still, a broken post can be unpleasant.

My Easton E70 zero seatpost kept sliding down, and I didn't want to over-tighten it, so I had to get creative.

What worked was turning 1500 wet or dry sandpaper face side to the seat post and using it as a very toothy compressible shim.

It works great, and relieves you of having to tighten down the clamp too tight.

If you pull the seatpost out though, you'll need a new shim. It's sacrificial.

It must be that huge saddle bag that was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Why the heck do you need a saddle bag that gigantic?
