Nashbar Carbon SB 350mm Seatpost
Lighten up your prized ride without lightening your wallet courtesy of the Nashbar Carbon SB Seatpost. And not only does the carbon fiber post and its forged aluminum, low-profile clamp do wonders to shave grams, you'll delight in how easy it will be to precisely position your saddle. The Nashbar Carbon SB features a two-bolt, micro-adjust clamp that's perfectly designed for minute adjustments. The front bolt rotates to dial in the angle and once that's set the rear bolt tightens to lock the saddle in place. The post's 350mm length works well with compact frame geometry on road or mountain bikes while the high gloss finish adds a serious touch of class to any bike's aesthetics.

Nice post, but Loctite causes problem with install

Comments about Nashbar Carbon SB 350mm Seatpost:

First a disclaimer, I have not actually ridden on it yet (it's snowing), but wanted to write this review while the installation was still fresh in my mind. It's a beautiful looking post, glossy charcoal color, no visible weave pattern. Looks great on my Nashbar carbon 105 bike (which I love). The problem is trying to install the post with the factory applied loctite on the bolts. If you don't know, loctite is a compound, usually blue or red, applied to threads to keep them from unintentionally unscrewing. It does increase the torque required to tighten the bolt. This is not a problem when using a wrench, but one of these bolts is designed only to be thumb tightened. That is the problem, due to the loctite you cannot turn the bolt with your fingers. I had to apply WD40 on the threads in order to be able to finger tighten it, probably rendering the loctite useless with regard to intended purpose. I read all of the reviews prior to purchase and did not see any mention of the loctite issue, so perhaps the loctite is a new addition. Otherwise, everyone would have been complaining. The post I replaced uses two allen bolts which is a much nicer setup. Also, I think this would be a difficult setup to try to adjust at a stop during a ride. I was doing it on my work bench and it was still tough. Hopefully it's dialed in and won't need further adjustment. When doing the install, I removed the old seatpost with saddle attached and traced the entire thing on a large piece of paper to be used as a template in to hopefully exactly duplicate the geometry. Tip, use carbon assembly compound, not bike grease, for the install.

    Comments about Nashbar Carbon SB 350mm Seatpost:

    I purchased this seat post to use on my Meek 3.0DS bike I received for Christmas. I read reviews on the bike and it was suggested to go with a carbon seatpost. It doesn't seem much lighter than the aluminum one that came with the bike but it does absorb road vibrations better. It seems to be very well built and for the price I don't think you can go wrong.

      used this once and found i was above horizontal (tilted upwards) the front bolt mentioned before was not recommended to be used by CS(thumb-wheel)
      the proper way to install this post horizontally is to tighten the front bolt enough so that you cannot inset your rails with the lower retainer in place.
      Then take out the bottom piece put your saddle in and wedge the lower in to sandwich the rails
      this ensures you will haea a horizontal saddle
      no other way that i am aware of (unless you have a ergo seat with cutouts. The front bolt points upwards into the seat?

        Works as a carbon fiber seatpost should. Just be super careful if you opt to cut it down a bit if you think the additional "weight" slows you down. Not a suggestion, but people have been known to do so.

                  Comments about Nashbar Carbon SB 350mm Seatpost:

                  This seat post was a replacement of the original that came on my 2007 Raleigh Cadent Carbon. There was nothing wrong with the original, but by making the swap I went from 306g to 241g for the seatpost and was part of larger effort to upgrade my bike's drivetrain. The only issue I experienced was trying get my saddle installed. I was working with the post and saddle before I installed it in the bike frame and this may have been some of the problem. The mounting bracket has one bolt to clamp the saddle rails and another bolt with a thumbwheel on it that is used to adjust the seat angle. The problem for me was not realizing that the thumbwheel to adjust the seat angle can't turn when the other bolt is any tension on it. Having to loosen the main bolt to complete saddle angle adjustments makes getting the angle exact a bit of a hit and miss project.

                  So far riding with the new post has been uneventful and I don't have any reason to think that will change.

                    This is a great seat post. I weight 240 pounds, and sometimes carry a 10 pound back pack with me on my commutes. This seat post is extremely sturdy and doesn't move at all. I have put about 220 miles on it so far and it has not slid a millimeter. Don't pay more for a name brand, buy this Nashbar seat post, it is amazing, durable, light, strong, sturdy, reliable and everything a seat post needs to be!!!!
