Heathpack should post a bike photo and how much she spent on the post that doesn't work. Addiction can then recommend a similarly priced non-BMC post. If it's 27.2, you have options from every company.
If this is all marketing BS, then I'm ok with going with some other seat post. But I was trying to get the BMC post to maximize the thing I spent so much $ to get- a compliant but not too compliant bike.
Happy to post pics, but of what? The wrong mountain bike post? The 18mm offset post that came with the bike but does not work? The current 0mm offset aluminum post that's on the bike (supposedly temporarily)?
Regardless, I'm going to go actually ride the bike this afternoon, so I'll be out for a bit.
The bike photo is to recommend a post that matches.
I doubt there's anything unique about the carbon layup of the BMC post.
It rained like crazy last night, or something. I had the same stuff on the grass and back porch. The roads were dry enough to ride the NP, but even wet, I would have ridden it. Once I wear the goody off my stuff, everything is fair game. Though it took me a while to trust the CF on dirt.
