It was not really what I would call hilarity but shock, I was on my baby at the time, a brand spanking new Campagnolo state of the art 50/34 arm careening down the asphalt, I felt horrible.

I hate finding a cut posts, unless it a modern substitute that is as said above 3' long. After all butchering a nice Sugino fluted post to save a fraction of a watt on a C&V is just crazy to me.
