    In general, carbon posts are quite fine for heavier riders, although extension length, rider weight, riding style, road conditions, and seat post construction will all be factors.

    For example, a...

    As I said before, my point is that calling BS on something without ant credible reason for doing so is unfair. I agree with you that the Flo30 besting Zipp404 sounds unlikely, but were talking about...

    No, I didn't miss it, and my point is exactly that it's not 'apples to apples' since we don't know the methodology of the various tests we're comparing, and because rim height alone doesn't mean aero...

    I'm just not convinced by the reasoning that a rim 33mm shorter than 85mm can perform better than the 85mm, but a rim 22mm shorter than a 52mm cannot outperform a 52mm just because Zipp 404s are...

    I think Sapim would say that they're stronger and build a more rigid and durable wheel than, say, a round Laser spoke, too.

    Hmm, that doesn't seem like anything new to me. I've still got a couple of Mavic rims from the '90s/early '00s, a pair of 517s and a set of OPs that both have small cracks at the eyelets. I thought...

    I appreciate the reply, although I have to say that it did nothing to fire my BS detector, and if a 52mm can outperform an 85mm (per November Rail prototype), I don't follow your logic that I'd have...

    Would any of you aware of the supposedly "apparent" drop in quality care to elaborate on the nature of the quality loss?

    Really, your BS detector? What do you know about the Zipp testing methodologies compared to Flo? Are the posted figures with tires, and if so, which?

    I'm also curious about your "6-7 watts of...

    "Shoulder angle" is not a meaningful fit element to me, in the sense that I've not heard of it nor used it, so leaving that aside and looking at the pic, I'd just say to put a 90mm stem on there,...

    Like I said. Despite no singles, I think the Altamont would be a great 'daily rider,' if only because it's wide, built well, looks great, and delivers a modern rim in a wheel suitable for clydes;...

    This is one of the reasons I like Flo; they're very open with their data and design objectives, so I do trust the wheels are more slippery than Altamonts, for which I've seen no test results or data...
