As expected we get a lot of questions regarding the recently released CF3 Pro Carbon seatpost. We will try to address all those questions here in this blog post. If it pertains to the CF3, it will be below. Here we go!
Q: What is the MSRP of the CF3?
Q: What sizes does the CF3 come in?
A: Currently there is only one length and diameter: 27.2 x 330
Q: How much set back does the CF3 have?
A: The CF3 is available in 2 options; 0 set back or 25mm set back. Each CF3 seat post comes with a Flip Head saddle rail clamp designed to fit oval saddle rails (7×7). This clamp can be rotated on the CF3 to offer the rider a small amount of fore and aft adjustment beyond the normal fore and aft adjustment on the rails.
Q: Can I use the CF3 on my mountain bike?
A: No. The CF3 is designed for road and dirt road use only. Use on a mtb will void the warranty.
Q: Is there a rider weight limit on the CF3?
A: Yes. The rider weight limit is 220 lbs.
Q: My bike as a 31.6 seat tube. Can I shim the CF3 to fit?
A: No. The CF3 cannot be shimmed to fit larger diameter seat tubes. The seat tube must be 27.2
Q: Will my saddle fit?
A: The CF3 comes stock out of the box to fit round (7×7) railed saddles. This is found on mostly all aluminum, ti, and cro-mo railed saddles. Carbon oval (7×9) railed saddles will require an aftermarket clamp from Ergon called the Flip Head. If you are unsure what rails you have on your saddle, please check with the manufacturer.
Q: Is there a warranty on the CF3 Pro Carbon?
A: Yes. As with all Ergon products, it is 2 years from the date of purchase.
Q: How much suspension does the CF3 have?
A: The CF3 does not have measurable suspension travel. The seatpost is designed to flex when the rider is sitting on the saddle while riding rough roads. The carbon of the seat post is designed to not flex under rider weight or while riding smooth roads.
Q: How much does the CF3 weight?
A: Approx. 220 grams

The future of our sport is here! It’s in the form of NICA, or the National Intercholastic Cycling Association. High School teams are formed and forming all over the USA, bringing boys, girls, and families to the competitive side of the sport. This past weekend in Eagle, Colorado was the 2013 Colorado HS Championships. Teams from all over the State descended on the new Haymeadow Trail here in Eagle near the Ergon USA – Colorado offices. Was AMAZING to see so many kids on bikes, as well as large crowds lining the course cheering them on. We were excited to get involved and volunteered to ride “sweep” of the Varisty boys and girls races. Here are a few highlight images from the day.
A duo of Aspen High School riders drop down towards Eagle.
Parents sit atop the high point on course and wait for the racers to past below them, and then behind them later in the lap(s).
Our duty for the day.
Early in the day, a category of HS racers line up prior to being called up at the race start.
The Town of Eagle built nearly 8 miles of new singletrack since March 2013 specifically to host this amazing event.
2 competing racers drop through cheering fans en route to finishing a lap.

Recently, we ventured to Costa Rica with Sonya and Jeff of Team Topeak-Ergon to help introduce Ergon to the Costa Rican market as well as promote two new adventure mountain bike races; the Rincon de La Vieja Challenge and the Ultimate 200km Challenge. Both of these races will be happening in Sept and/or October of 2014.
With an environment like Costa Rica, you get it all. Rider rode through the jungle, rain forests, cloud forests, rice fields, and even crossed over wetland by boat and foot. Stay tuned for more info on these soon to be epic events. For now, here are some images from recon of the 2 courses…..
