Has anyone had issues with the Garnet post binding?

I just installed a brand new one tonight, (CRC sourced) in a brand new steel frame, freshly reamed. It's binding extremely badly in the first 50mm from top, to the point it takes a foot on pedal and a huge pull to get back up. That's with the seat clamp at 3nm, the lever tension correct and nothing weird going on (about 50mm of post inserted over minimum.

It feels very mechanical, like something is obstructing it or not aligned.

What’s your psi at?

Towards the top of range, 225 I think. I also tried it with no air, same thing.

There's a pretty long backstory to how DVO came to be on this bike, but all that really matters is that it feels awesome and finalgear and DVO's service went so far above and beyond I can't say enough good things about them. I'm looking forward to dialling the Sapphire tomorrow.

Wait he will be back once he sees how crappy the 40 is.
