I-Beam for Clydes?

Hello

Has anyone got any experience or annecdotes about the I-Beam seat system? Particularly for a heavier rider (112kg/246lbs).

Thanks

I'm about 265. The I beam system came stock on my 06 Schinn Fastback 27. About 6 k on the bike now. no issues. It has never moved, or shown any sign of weakness. My only issue with is where you fish the straps for the seat bag is a little sharp and rough. Starting to fray the straps pretty good.
