    I’d rather be uncomfortable than have anything that ugly on my bike.

    This is quite new, but anyone tried one on a road bike or mtb?

    I think it’s because the SL4 frames have become so stiff that Spesh have needed to add some extra boing to justify the Roubaix name.

    But I may be wrong.

    I’ve just put one in my 2012 specialized secteur – off the bat, utterly fantastic. Doesn’t act as suspension at the back end, more acts like a load of padding so you still know you’ve gone over something but it just smooths it out a bit which is enough for me to gain a fair amount more composure on rough descents and go a touch quicker.

    I’ve never tried another carbon post though so I’ve got no comparison other than with alloy posts, but it’s streets ahead of those.

    Spoke to my mate but he’s yet to ride it as been moving house sorry all

    was skeptical but have tested during post-build test rides on custom road builds for my customers

    its actually very effective in use over rough ground (cobbles or most UK roads if we are being honest…the government does not want to repair our broken roads!)

    I own CF seatposts and high end aluminium alloy posts in comparison

    not reason why it would not work on a mountain bike hardtail, but no idea about the “warranty” of using a road product on a mountain bike?
