Zipp SC seatpost and stem

Stem:
pros: light, stiff enough
cons: 4 torx bolts in the faceplate, giant logo, the machined Z on the faceplate is kind of 'sharp' like they didnt knock the edges off, they took it out of the machine and boxed it up without going over it.

seatpost:
pros: matches the stem
cons: weighs a fugn ton, has a stupid interface. hard to get anything but an L shaped wrench on the angle adjustment bolt.

this is the lower end model of the alloy zipp components, the SC, NOT the SC SL.

why torx instead of regular allen? i guess less chance of stripping, but stem bolts don't seem to be a terribly high torque bolt anyways.

annoying

IRC (im 5 feet away, get lazy ass up) it's 4nM tightness.

also, here's a TC: take the stem out of the box > toss papers/box to the side coz manly >go to put it on my bike > torx? wtf! > search up and down the shop for a torx bit. find one. look for the screwdriver adapter thingie. dont find it > remember that there's a torx bit on the multitool > use that > clean up crap/pick up box/pick up papers/find TORX BIT WITH ALLEN ADAPTER IN THE BOX FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU
