Just bought a Zipp 2-bolt "SL Speed" carbon seat post, to replace a several year old Specialized S-works 1-bolt post.

The wall thickness on the Zipp post measures noticeably thinner -- 0.8-0.9 mm -- than I remember the Specialized post.

> > I'm seeking "real world" experience & reassurance that the Zipp post is still safe to clamp in a work stand and not overly fragile.

I've always been delicate when a bike is clamped by a CF seatpost -- another layer of cushioning over the Park Tool's rubber jaws, and don't apply any huge torque to bike, like tightening BB cups.

Thx .

No worries, just be careful like you have been and you shouldn't have any problems. You're in effect spreading less clamping force over a much greater area w/ the workstand clamp than the actual seatpost clamp on the frame.
