Hey Dimitri,
I love the look of the Integrated Seat Post on the orange and white crosser. Is this a popular option among your customers?

Also, do you feel that an integrated seat post brings anything else to the ride other than aesthetics (nothing wrong with that )?

Honestly, I think it is mostly aesthetics that inspires people to want integrated.
I've ridden a couple of my own setups and I couldn't feel much difference between the integrated and a standard post, but it was on a cross bike and i imagine the tires soaked up alot. I would think the integrated post is definitely stiffer than a standard carbon seat post but probably not any harsher than your average aluminum post. I think the integrated posts look really cool and give the builder and painter something to work with but no significant advantage. I almost never change my seat height however I like the option to do so.

Hey D... Great to see you here!

I see William has posted a pic of my 'Cannibal'.

William asked about ride...my frame is a mix of S3 and OX Plat, and has a very tight and responsive feel. She can be a little stiff on skinny road tires...but performs very well on 32-35c files or light knobs. This is my gravel grinder/all-rounder, BTW.

Personally, I would have D build an S3 road frame, light as reasonably possible...

I have loved the Meech since I got it. I was going to copy and paste my entire thought, but I will just link my blog as it won't be a huge post then. Awesome frame. Awesome builder.

The Cannibal looks like a sweet ride! One that's up for any thing you throw at it.
