This is hands down the best seatpost I have ever used. Setup is simple, I don't notice any flex (i'm 165lbs) but there is plenty of vibration dampening for the chip seal roads we have here in SE Idaho. Plus, it looks beautiful.
I know it can be scary to buy something so cheap for our beautiful expensive bikes. But I have these cages is black and have used the same two cages for the past 3 years and have never had a problem. I've used them in every kind of road race there is. Plus, they are super light! You can barely find Carbon cages this light. Honestly, as long as they keep making this cage I will buy/recommend them.
Just got the kit in the mail today and it was a cinch doing the conversion. I was a little nervous but it was easy. Rode on them today and they seem great. I have a race next weekend so we'll see how they do.
I bought these wheels new from my LBS 3 years ago and they have been incredible! I have never had to true them and have put around 5K miles on them. I've raced and won crits on them, placed top 10 on a few century races, and a podium finish in a road race last year. They are incredibly versatile and they last! These wheels have sold me on Mavic and when I upgrade wheels I will stick with Mavic and probably pick up some Cosmic Carbones.
