Cutting an ISP mast

Postby pauls51 » Fri Oct 14, 2011 1:55 pm

Gday all,
Firstly sorry for the amateurish question;

I have been riding my Helium (with ISP) now for around 5 months and am loving it.. One thing that has played on my mind lately was when a fellow cyclist asked me whether I ran a seat shim. He told me that once you cut the seat mast you should put a shim on which will help protect the carbon fibre where you have made the cut...
Does this sound right? Would it be advised that I stop riding it until I throw one on???

Thanks in advance for your advice!

You don't need a shim - just ensure the clamp is done up to correct torque.
