I wish more companies would embrace the D post design.
That is an additional benefit of a D shaped post. Giant uses it for a different reason. If other companies use it do you believe they will adapt a standard or go all “Specialized” and come up with proprietary standards? It raises other concerns also. If it’s a CF frame no problem. An AL or steel frame will need to have the seat tubes shaped to accept it. That or use a very oversize tube with a D insert. All of which increase costs to manufacture in an already cost conscientious market.
