Had it been an alloy post it would simply have not been an issue. I find I need to crank my steapost binders pretty hard to keep the steapost from slipping, and I don't like to apply that much force to CF. Maybe high end CF posts don't have this problem, but I really don't like the idea of a seatpost being so easily comprimisable.
    I had an Easton EC-70 post on my road bike. I'm not sure if that's considered high end or not but it seems like a decent post. Some grit got into the notch on the seat tube- so that when I pulled it out it scratched the post. The resin seems pretty thick and I don't think it's comprimised but I'm not a fan of CF posts in general. The only reason I got it was 'cause it was the only one in the size I needed when I got my frame and I was too excited to build it up than to wait for a different one. I also think you have to be careful about using grease on those 'cause it can damage the resin.

    I've replaced it with a Thomson now anyhow since the Easton had too much setback so if anyone is looking for a 31.6 post PM me.

    Shiznaz- nice to meet you at CM BTW. I'm not usually so incoherent though. You totally surprised me

    Heh... Sure does. I saw a post on here about powedercoating places in the city and have been tossing around the idea of a new colour in the spring since.

    @I_bRAD: that could have been me. I'm at King & Duff now but used to live right behind to that Loblaws so I sometimes hit it up still. When I take the long way to the store that is

    Ugh. 24 different spagetti and meat sauce to taste. I am so stuffed and now have 2 hours to finish a term paper. All those carbs, I'm going to pass out on the subway and wake up at Kipling instead of St. George. If I never see spagetti again it will be a day too soon.

    I needs me some vegetarian pasta (sauce) recipes. I've always just used bottled sauce and added extras but I'm getting really really really really sick of that. But pasta is just damned convenient to make after a long day. The only thing I make from scratch is basil pesto and aglio e olio (which isn't too tough!).

    Easy enough. 3 cloves garlic, 1 onion, 2 carrots, 5-6 mushrooms, whatever other veg you want. 1 small can diced or whole tomatoes, 1 cup red wine, 1tbsp tomato paste, dried or fresh herbs.

    Dice veg, heat oil in pan and add garlic and onion, saute until brown, add herbs and salt/pepper, add other veg, cook 2-3 minutes, add tomato paste, cook 2 minutes, add wine, reduce until almost gone, add canned tomatoes, simmer for 10 minutes or so, add sugar if too acidic. When pasta is done add to sauce and cook for 1 minute. Serve and drink rest of wine.

    Basically.

    the chef that grades our dishes at school carries around a spit bucket so she doesn't have to eat 30 of whatever we make that particular day. this was a particularly good idea when we made mayonaise.

    By the end of the day I was having like 1 piece of spag and a smidge of sauce. Otrher problem is too many kids like chili flakes. By the 4th period all I could taste was fire.

    Yeah, I kinda like carbon seatposts but I have only ridden the Specialized one with the Zertz inserts, which apparently make it more resilient and absorbs bumps better. I dunno know if that means it is less likely to scratch/gouge but so far, I've had no problems. I know that the grease has to be special for carbon, it cannot have any zinc in it, but that shouldn't be too hard to come by. I got the Alter in the mail today, it is sweet.

    They also have special grease for carbon seatposts that slip. They have like microscopic spheres in them or something.

    Nice, those are way better than the stop motions I have made. Great choice of music for each. The first one makes me think of kid koala videos and the like. Great concept.

    PS. I washed out on the streetcar tracks turning left onto wellington from Bathurst tonight. I narrowly missed my ratty cargo shorts and burned a nice hole through my spensive winter cycling pants. Luckily the guy in the SUV behind me didn't run me over! My wrist hurts a little and I have a nice round friction burn on my left knee. Now I have no recourse but to tape over the hole with yellow duct tape.
