The BodyFloat difference
I was very excited to get the BodyFloat out of the box, onto my bike, tuned up, and on the road. It was very well packaged and labeled with easy to read instructions. Charlie, one of the owners of BodyFloat, personally reached out to me to see if I had any questions or concerns and if so, to contact him right away. Awesome customer service!
After un-boxing the BodyFloat, I put it on the scale to see the true weight difference between it and my Specialized FACT carbon CG-R post. My Specialized post weighed around 9 ounces and my carbon BodyFloat was 16.08 ounces. The difference between the two was that the BodyFloat was just a hair over 7 ounces heavier. Heavier yes, but not a deal-breaker if it lives up to their promise. Heck, I could make that up by skipping a few desserts or beverages.
I’ve noticed there is a small give on my stock post but not enough to provide 3 hr+ rides without back discomfort/tightness. With the BodyFloat springs, there was much more movement, not sloppy, but controlled in a gradient manner.The top picture is my Specialized post while the bottom picture is the BodyFloat. I do love the fact the BodyFloat springs provided are orange and the frame is black matching my bike perfectly. In a couple of days, I will be taking it on a test ride and report back to you on it’s ride. Stay tuned!
