This is the Saddleback blowout stock - 3T are now going direct to consumer and severed ties with the distro hence some really cheap 3T kit floating around on various bike sites - Wiggle/CRC/Merlin - as the relationship ended late last year.
@TotalShanner Yup. Build thread here: https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/358063/ and the reason I have a grey one is because I couldn’t get a RX4 flat mount in Purple. I’m glad I couldn’t tbh. Really like this colour and the blue / purple.
Purchased after much research it has to be said. Sure, there are horror stories. But people don’t come online to say that their seatpost hasn’t slipped do they?
If it slips and G man at 3T tells me to tighten it more and it creaks in doing so I’m not concerned providing my warranty is intact.
Darimo have a seatpost on the way, and so do 3T in the form of a Ritchey head clamp. Most of the internet stories relate to the head slipping as the design in gash.
All in all risk vs reward I’ve gone for it. A bit more interesting than my CAAD12 frame that’s for sure.
