Sorry, missing the issue. Aero seatposts
That's good for people like me who can't afford Chorus.
Campy...post Super Record era mostly.

Italians don't confuse you, they simply make you think that what they produce is more valued/sophisticated
Why should Campy be diff.
I don't get it either, yes the one on the right is certainly a better model so what. shimano is all the same stuff under the fancy coloring.

Well if my campy serves me correct, the chorus seatpost is a replica of the Corsa Record seatpost, sans the word chorus at the base.

What difference does a seatpost make? I just want mine to hold my seat up. Can someone explain this to me?
You people need to buy a sense of humor! It's sometimes difficult to differentiate the model levels of Campagnolo components, especially from the late 80's to mid 90's, at least for the uninitiated. Even the early stuff is sometimes difficult to pin down. Haven't you been reading the forum?
The post on the left is suitable to the Triomphe and Victory groups - both as introduced and in the later Triomphe S3 and Victory S3 incarnations - plus 1987-1990/1 Chorus, Athena, and Croce D'Aune.
The right post is applicable to 1991/2 Chorus RS and 1993-1994 Chorus.
There is absolutely no functional difference between either of these posts; the only difference is the engraved ring and step below the tapered aero section of each post. Both are roughly equal in Campagnolo's overall hierarchy. Similar posts include C-Record ("Record" after 1991), which used the same bolt mounting as Super Record; and Athena/Athena RS, which is identical to Chorus with exception to a much larger upper rail clamp. Neither are shown in the above photographs.
Not enough resolution on my screen to see any difference.
Probably not enough resolution in my butt to feel any difference.
I have spoken.
The one on the left is nearly identical to my Kosef, which is also made in Italy.
Campy must have copied it.
The best thing about old Campy, around here, is it is whatever you say it is.
Outside of norskagent or roccobike, no rider I know would have a clue.

Both are Record seatposts if they were on eBay.
Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell I’m doing; the other half, I’m sure of it.
