Looks ok Simon. A couple of the course numbers are wrong though the K8/10 and K34/10D should both be K34/10 and the K34/6G is now K37/6G. Not sure that it matters though.
Thanks for putting this together should help people work out what they need to do and when.

If their doing it under warranty then it's not costing. Just get another one and be careful how you tighten it up. Use proper carbon grip when you put it in and no more than 4nm. Sometimes carbon posts slip at the proper torque when people use ordinary grease so they end up tightening it more :-( Al...

I see this quite a lot. Alan is sort of right. The top of your seat tube/clamp is pinching inwards and squeezing the seat post. It's a case of tolerances being at the loose end so although seatpost is right size it's still pinching just a bit. I suspect whatever carbon seatpost you put in here the s...
