    FSA K-Force Light SB25

    I can beat that by 100 grams... but it was under $100.

    It's an upgrade from a stock alloy post. Just waiting for the torque key to arrive so I don't crush it with my he-man strength.

    I selected it based on this review, to reduce road buzz.

    That is supposedly the most comfortable seat post according to the test you pointed out, but it is heavier than the EVO post and people here don't care about the cost because they want the lightest, which surprises me that the EVO was purchased because at the SAME Fair View Bikes that sells the EVO they also sell the Extralite Ultrapost for the same money as the EVO except it's about 15 to 20 grams less.

    Personally I would have a bit of problem sitting myself down on such lightweight carbon posts made in Asia, the thought of one breaking and sending it up a hole designed for discharge, kind of freaks me out a tad. I think the Enve post would be a tad heavier but much more trustworthy since it's made in America, but that's just my opinion.

    Yes, I was being clever: FSA post is 100g heavier, hence it "beat" the Evo by 100 g (lol, right?). If it were 100g lighter, then it would weigh only 13g.

    Maybe someday we'll have 13 gram seatposts, probably not in my lifetime though, which there isn't much left to my lifetime!!!

    I bought a Castelli Gabba short sleeve jersey and it may be the best piece of kit I have. The thing rocks not only in wet weather but also cold windy days.

    I believe you are referring to the extralite 250mm post which weighs 99gms, for a 350mm post the Extralite is 20gms heavier than the Newultimate at 136gms

    Instead of ultralight seatposts, I got a seatpost that's super long, and light.

    I got some Capo Volta bibs from Competitive Cyclist for $140. I guess they are last years model but my butt doesn't seem to mind.

    Rode 15 miles to the local Cranksgiving event, cold and windy so my toes froze as usual. So on the way back I stopped by my usual bike shop (one of the event sponsors) and picked up some Bontrager RXL toe covers. I could immediately feel the difference!

    I picked up a chain whip and cassette lockring remover tool. This is the first bike I've had with a cassette and not a freewheel so I needed to go and pickup a few things.

    Great no-nonsense brakes. Have these on my road bike and Fixie (front).Not sure about the shimano pads that come stock these days, but the Kool Stop Red dura type are a nice upgrade.

    Got the 320's too:


    Shimano does make a black/blue shoe that is pretty nice looking:

    Bont also makes a custom blue shoe, but they're spendy:
