I'm considering a carbon seatpost for the new 853 frame I plan on purchasing. Any recomondations on which one. Also for commuting can I use my Topeak seatpost rack with one or should I just stick with a quality aluminum post?
sounds like you don't want a carbon postShylock

...I wouldn't buy a carbon post and then clamp a seatpost rack to it. seatcollars can do damage to posts, so just imagine what a rack will do.

Otherwise, I like my USE alien for the weight savings. Clamp is finnicky, but it's damn light.
