Has anyone else experianced the following.....
I've had 2 SDG I-Beam Seatposts fail in an identical manner in the past 4 weeks.
These all occured sub zero or near to zero conditions.
One failure occured at the start of a climb the other on a canal path.
The posts split at the rear with the crack running approx 60mm down the post, where the head is bonded into place
The 1st failure was to a 12 month old post which has been well used for XC (never jumped or crashed)
The second bought as a replacement (from a UK internet co and approved dealer by the importer!) has only been used on 4 local XC rides and probably been subject to less than 10hrs use.
One failure I would accept after 12 of continuous usage and some serious mileage.... however a second just seems to indicate a fundamental design flaw
On both occassions i've been lucky not to have been injured by the pastry cutteresque remains of the posts (and had to ride about 5 miles without a saddle/post)
(I've got photos of both failures and may post them later when i retrieve them from my phone)
