    Threaded seat tube in a 2018 Lynskey 470

    Just received a Lynskey 470 frameset and I noticed it has a fully threaded seat tube. Has anyone seen that before? It looks like it would ruin a carbon fiber seat post.

    Doesn't look like threads. You sure they're not just grooves for grip?

    Yes all three of my Lynskey frames have this.

    It is the aluminun insert. No problem running carbon seat posts on my 2010 Lynskey.
