I’m considering buying a carbon fibre seatbase sometime soon since the seat I’m riding now is really heavy because it’s reinforced with steel. I’ve also heard that seatposts last longer with carbon fibre bases.
What I’m wondering is how long I can expect the base to last if I buy one. Have any of you broken one? If so, how did you break it? I’ll only be using it for flatland and small street, but I do like to do a lot of crankflips.
Dont waste your time with an UDC base, they are thin and strip out easy. I had one and it was just a pain in the arse the entire time. The best cf base out there is the Axel base. You can contact Axel Kastle on the forums or via facebook. The bases come pre-drilled so the only thing you have to do is put on the handle and bumper. Be sure to have old style of bumpers because those are the only ones that fit the cf bases.
yeah I also bought one from UDC 2-3 years ago but I didn’t drill the holes good enough so now the bolt are just turning around and I already tried to fix them with superglue but nothing works so thats kinda shit
