Hello folks, I have a few questions about Selcof brand road seatposts.

First, has anyone had slippage issues when using a carbon pillar Selcof post in a carbon frame such as Look? Second, how would you rate this brand of seatpost for setback, adjustability and durability? Is this a road seatpost I'll have to replace every other year or are they pretty well made and durable, I'm looking at the carbon model with the aluminum head/clamp which retails for about $150.

good post...

The Selcof and ITM Millennium are quite similar. I've used the ITM several times with no problems. A carbon post should not require frequent replacement. The setback is about 5mm more than a typical Campy or shimano post. The front bolt does require an 8mm open-end wrench, not a hex wrench to tighten it.

As for working with a LOOK frame, it should be fine, whether the frame uses the older internal clamping device or the newer external clamp.

I have a Selcof Monocoque carbon. Came on my DeRosa. You don't have to re-adjust the tilt to take the saddle off, just let loose the back bolt and the front stays there. Strong clamping system doesn't require a lot of torque on the bolts.

Monocoque design is very strong. I've heard reports of AL de-bonding from the carbon tube in early designs, but I won't have that problem.

I did an endo at 50km/h and bent a Flite Ti saddle (rails..completely trashed) and the post suffered no ill effects. Tough stuff!
