45mins of no seat post racing pleasure.

Don't wait until it happens to you in a race, go straight to your bike right now, tear off that seat post and hit the trails at race pace for an hour... let me know how much fun it was. You know it's fun!

Why are you still sitting there? Go. Now.

Hey Ed,

Luckily you will get to have another go at it a week or so. ;-)

I broke a Thomson seatpost in a similar manner, exact same spot and Thomson said it was due to over torquing the saddle rail bolts. What is the torque spec for the bolts and could they have been overtightened? It's easy to do.

I suppose anything is possible.
