I just purchased a r700 Cannondale today.
The carbon seatpost that came with it was somehow defective, it was made just slightly too small, could not secure it into position.
The LBS gave placed a Thomspon Elite all aluminum post in its place.
They told me that in fact the thompson is lighter and a better seat post.
They could get me a replacement for the stock one or I could keep the Thompson. It is my decision.
Does anyone have any comments on the difference?
It does not seem that weights are listed on the Cannondale web site.
Also, people say that carbon seat posts makes a better ride.
Thanks in advance,
