    Hello world,

    Am still building up my Pista Concept, and was wondering if any one had any preference in carbon seat posts?

    I'm looking to balance quality with economy.

    I was thinking of Easton or Ritchey maybe. Then I saw a LOOK carbon seat post on ebay which looked good.

    any thoughts?

    thanks!

    Thomson Masterpiece. It's the strongest seatpost available, and there is only 2 posts that are lighter...but they are drastically weaker.

    aluminium frame = carbon post. if you've ever rode an alu frame on the street, you'd know why.

    I rode a aluminum IRO frame for awhile, before getting two different steel track frames. I did not think they felt that bad at all. Not THAT huge of a difference to even make note of.

    You could always ride a aluminum post, and ride a seat with carbon rails like a Fizik Arione.
