I've been running a non-brand name full carbon saddle for less than a year. It lasted through a couple of crashes and 'cross season. But when my usual ride stopped for coffee, I found out both rails failed. When in alignment, the saddle held enough to get me home.
The break was right at the point where the Thomson Masterpiece clamp mechanism starts, not far behind the nose of the saddle. Is there anything to be aware of about where the rails broke? The seatpost is offset - does this mean I should be running a seatpost without an offset?
I expected the failure at some point, just want to be sure there isn't anything I'm missing before shopping for a replacement.
