Hello guys and gals, this is my first posting in the Mechanic's thread so lets see if you guy's can help me here with a situation I have. I have a specialized Roubaix that I have ridden for 1,300 miles I weigh in at 285 lbs started riding at 460 lbs on another bike and started riding the rubay at around 330lbs, small history out of the way. The other day I heard a clicking sound while pedaling while going over uneven pavement, lo and behold I found that I over tightend the seat clamp a bit to much ( Yes besides I way a ton..) and the carbon fiber fact seat post finnaly cracked Longitudal ( up and down ). Its a hair line crack that appers to be on the surface, I am an auto tech by trade so busted out the borascope and saw that the crack isnt showing internally. Granted I know how carbon fiber can be damaged and not show, but if I stick a wooden dowel up inside and bond with some type of agent will it work to keep it from completely letting go ? I don't care about the weight as the extra few ounces can be lost via sweat and hard riding.. or do you all have any other suggestion ( besides buying a Thomson which won't happen till next month)? thanks for the help..
