- Carbon posts & comfort
Did the Lakeland monster CX yesterday on my Boardman team CX, the full 101km route.
Realised that the bike is bloody stiff, not helped by the 35mm tyres if I’m honest. It’s the longest & roughest ride I’ve ever done on it by some considerable distance.
Would a carbon post help take some of the sting out of it, I’ve got a decent amount of post out to allow for some flex, currently running on the bogo alloy onePosted 4 years agovelocipedeMember
I rode the Lakeland Monster too – on a Spesh Crux – I am still struggling with legs/back/shoulders today!!
I’m not sure a change of seatpost would make much difference to the punishment you received on Sunday – I’m pretty sure that whatever you do,a 5-6 hour ride on a cx bike on that terrain is going to hurt!!
I’m already looking forward to riding it next year – on my MTB!!!!
