I recently bought a carbon seatpost online that appears to be damaged inside the shaft. Do these look like cracks to you guys?
Surely that can't be normal? I've seen inside a different carbon seatpost before and it didn't look anything like that.
I also noticed that the 2 load bearing thicker sections of the inner wall are not perfectly aligned with the front and rear of the post, the thickness is a little bit to the sides of the post instead. This has me concerned that it won't have proper weight distribution and could cause extra flex and stress when sitting on it. Am I correct about that?
Any opinions on this would be much appreciated.
