I saw this link on ebay for a cheap Ritchey stem. Looks too good to be true but the retailer (absolute cycles) seems to have a physical shop in the UK. What do people think, real or fake. Shards of carbon up the @rse not fun... ... 43afe13ab3

    This is the normal price ( Google :: "Ritchey WCS Alloy Seatpost" )

    Definitely no danger of carbon shards with that :wink:

    I'd read it a bit closer, what part of "One piece 3D-Net forged 7075 alloy seatpost from Ritchey" implies carbon?

    I own one - certainly not fake.
