Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Sexy non-offset seatposts?

Simple question. I know there's the Thompson, but who else makes an aesthetically-pleasing non-offset seatpost in 27.2? Silver or black, road or mtn, doesn't matter.

Dave-

Although exhorbitantly expensive, I'm a big fan of the Tune design for non-offset posts:

I seem to recall other manufacturers using this design, but couldn't find anything off the bat. I'll post (pun intended) if I find anything.

Those seatposts are kinda nice and all. But what bugs me is the glued nature of carbon posts and the pricey as shiat nature of a lot of the one piecers.

Well not necessarily very sexy, the Kalloy Guizzo seat post is the absolute best bang for the buck. 45 dollars for a one piece (no glued head onto the shaft) 2 bolt seatpost design.

The Post Moderne Smica seatpost is a cheaper option - look for it on Wiggle (UK webshop) and you will see that it has good reviews. Here is a link but it doesn't go straight to the right post http://www.wiggle.co.uk/Default.aspx...e=Seat%20Posts

I've got the older version with nastier logos, but I took them off and now it looks good and does the job.

How 'bout this? http://www.bike-x-perts.com/en/produ...cts_id/127194/

It looks way better than that in life (and other pics). One-piece, sexy as it gets, and mine actually weighs ~180-190 g at 350 mm, way less than the official figure. (The company is German, though...)

As to the original question: no idea. (Helpful, ain't I?)

Doesn't get any sexier. Only 86 grams. Price? 220 pounds.

Ah-ha. I thought AX Lightness used a similar design as the Tune. Come to think... so does M2Racer.

Not that it really helps

EDIT: If you can find them on eBay, old Kooka and some IRD posts are similar.
