    If no better options present themselves, I have a knockoff 3T carbon seatpost. While new/unused, the quality leaves something to be desired (flaking paint on alloy head), but you can have it (for...

    Yeah, strongly recommend Islabike. A few of us have them here. Not the cheapest option, but in same order of magnitude as other big brands and quality is really top-shelf. And their customer service...

    Yeah, that's fair. With a large enough group this could definitely be a fun day on the bike. Well, "fun" :)

    I had to send my MiNewt 250 off for warranty repair once -- it got overly wet, I guess, and the power button was half green and half red (and the light wouldn't illuminate). But since then, that...
