    Recommendations for a light setback seatpost?

    Currently using a Thomson Masterpiece- great post, but only 15mm setback. I'd like at least 25mm, and preferably more. Aluminum preferred, carbon OK, 185 grams or less for a 250mm post.

    Anyone using a post like this and happy with it?

    Yeah, that's not bad... I'd like more setback, though- that looks like ~25mm. I was thinking of the FSA posts, and that new American Classic alloy post looks nice too. Any opinions?

    I have been checking out eBay, and I work part-time at a shop, so I can order most anything. Just don't have much experience with anything but Thomsen posts for the last few years.

    Hey, would you want to trade your thomson post for mine if it's long enough?

    I need one with setback, and if you're going to sell it anyway, you won't really lose anything.

    i need lots of setback and i use an easton ea 50. it's heavier than what you want so take a look at the higher end models.
