    In all my years working on bikes, I have never seen this happen. Hoping you’re alright and can get that replaced ASAP.

    I remember reading that this is a known possible issue with the first generation bikeyoke revives under heavy riders, a year or so after I got it. I think mines a gen 1. I figured hasnt happened yet so i gueess its ok. apparently not but took 5 years.
    Up next: Wolftooth Resolve. or maybe th ol' unclamp-and-drop a plain post, my frame on the way has a full-length seat tube. Old school!

    That happened to me with a WTB TI rail saddle. Was a couple years old. I sent them pics and asked it it was supposed to do this? They asked for the broken saddle so I sent it to them and they sent me a new one. No charge. Yah never know until yah ask.

    I had my rails bust and then needed to ride home only a few miles but 1000 ft of climbing. It is hard standing all the way home
    Happy trails

    My bud Grant broke his saddle on a long ride in Chino Hills. We told him to take the nearest exit and we’d pick him up. He decided he would tough it out and just stand the whole way.
    He got more and more frustrated as the ride progressed. By the end he was just throwing his bike forward and walking.

    I threw a wonderful temper tantrum in front of a few iMTB folks years ago on a SART ride. While I had a lot to be frustrated about, I'll never let myself live that down :gotnothing:
