What is this aluminum insert for? And did it slip into the frame, or did the seat angle slip... It looks like a sweet post.Wish I Were Riding said:My friend had Kent build him a custom post that is 410mm or so with an aluminum insert at the bottom. He weighed 240 when he got it, but is I think running about 220 lbs now. It slipped 1 time, but never since he put the right amount of torque on it. I'm surprised how well its working for him. I looks very nice too.
The insert was just extra precaution for his weight and how long the post was. It adds stiffness at the bottom wear it goes into the frame.ShadowsCast said:What is this aluminum insert for? And did it slip into the frame, or did the seat angle slip... It looks like a sweet post.
