Any opinions on the EPX carbon seat posts? I need an extended one (I'm 6'5") and they make a 400MM. Going to match it up with my '03 Zurich and a Selle Prolink genuine gel.

It can be bought through the website. If you have any issues with them, there are plenty of dealers to help you with the warranty process. It comes in 350mm, which should be sufficient for a non-compact frame like your lemond.

IMO, save your money and buy an aluminum post. Or if you're really want something cool, get a titanium post like a Moots. Carbon posts are bad news and easily damaged. It's not like saving 40 or 50g is going to make any difference with the set up you've got, and at 6'5" the security of an aluminum or ti post should be reassuring.

ride on,

What do you think of the Thomson AL seatposts?
