Ah. Then get the carbon frame that lights your fire. There's nothing wrong with that. In fact, it can be very inspiring.

This is why the DF3 and BT are nice because they use a standard 27.2 seatpost.
Slipping proprietary aero seatposts is an epidemic that frame manufacturers seem to be ignoring. It's even common in the road bike world.

Dude just paint the DF3 pink and be done with it!
