    A person can only vote for one? I have 3 of the four options, and would have 5 of six were titanium rightly included.

    i don't know the purpose of the poll, but if it's anything other than to be pointless, I'd have to call it flawed.

    Yeah, OP should have provided for multiple kind on different bikes. Besides, just knowing what people ride is pointless. It's how do they feel that matters.

    No option for a set forward post? What about the folks with a set forward post to accomodate their custom geometry needs?

    It's on assumption this would be the road bike you ride most.

    Is there an assumption that setback vs zero setback is as much of a preference as Al vs CF? If so, that's cute.

    After getting my fit I needed to stick with a 20-25mm setback seatpost. I really wanted a Thomson, but i don't like the look of their setback posts so I ended up with a carbon FSA post.

    Besides, I think their largest setback post is only 15 mm. At least on the Masterpiece.
