Subject: Seat Post issue
I have a felt B16 and am having an issue with the seat post. There is forward/back movement on the seatpost. I have everything torqued down to proper tension but it is still rocking back and forth. The post clamp is also shifting. I've pulled everything off and looked and don't see any obvious cause, everything looks fine but this is my first carbon bike so I'm not sure what the issue could be or fixes or is this a normal thing for this bike? (don't think so)

Any advice would be appreciated.

I would be concerned about the seatpost being cracked. Even if you can't find anything, take the bike into the shop.

Ok figured it wasn't going to be a simple fix. Thanks for confirming that.

Hi - how did you get this resolved? was it a replacement frame ? I have a similar issue with a B16. looks like the clamp or shim inside the frame has come away.

thanks

Would it be a simple and advisable to swap back and forth between the road seat post with no aero bars and the tri seat post with aero bars?

I have a Specialized Allez Elite road bike with aero bars. It has the stock seatpost. I am interested in changing the seat post to one that is more forward. What would I look for?
