    A friend of mine purchased a new Easton Carbon EC90 seat post, sat on the bike in the garage and
    the top just snapped off, he was very very lucky he didn't 'impale' himself. Imagine what could
    have happened

    Where did he buy the seatpost? What size was the seatpost? What size was the seatpost it replaced?
    How much does 'your friend' weigh?

    A failure like this is not normal. There was either damage already to the post or it was the wrong
    size. In any event, it should be no issue at the LBS he, hopefully, purchased it from. >

    Is it possible your friend over-tightened the binder bolt?
