I was trying to figure out WTF the difference was between the two of 'em, till I realized the Protons had a couple more grip-lugs in the centre of the flat (and the spindle's a bit different).

THANKS FOLKS!!! She'll be getting dirty very soon... VERY soon. Plan on shuttling up to Cream Puff or Overnight Sensation - or Cop Killer - and givin' er a good once over.

Cheers,
D. Sanchez

It is a bit overkill. I know these things aren't meant to be sat on, but c'mon, it feels like some kinda rubberized pineapple pine cone thing. So it goes. Anyone want a new fly seat and matching beam seatpost PM me. We'll see how long this sticks around.

Overall though, seems solid as hell, the wheels were nice and tight (laced) upon unpacking) and the spec is over the top for this ride. It'll need a couple good runs to get it figured out, but hey, there's worse things I could be doing with my time.

Peace Out Cats!!

protons are aluminum, electrons are plastic.

Check. Duly noted, glad I got the protons

Will try nylon/composite after these wear out.

Keep the post, get a new SDG Saddle. Together they are a good, strong, light weight fit.
Or buy my Cromag Moon Saddle ( Grey /Red) and Hope Eternity seat post, also nice

Have a look at my rig...see you out on trails and at the Bike Park,
Enjoy your new ride!!
