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.
I really dig the ti post matt brown is rocking, but I don't know what kind it is.
FS or trade: 56cm Schwinn tange prestige Prologue TT frameset and front wheel. $225 obo.

yeah, i just got a thomson and im in love.
Ummmm...ok, I'll shut up.
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.
Sorry, I was being a dick. Sort of referencing my seatpost.Originally Posted by Fugazi Dave
i was going to mention a custom vanilla carbon/steel lugged seatpost, but i guess you beat me to it.Originally Posted by Chimay
The older logo was better though.
Ah. Here's a pic Jim-Bob posted in another thread.
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.
from that link for the Ringle:
. It is available in most the RingleŽ colors; Blue, Black, pewter Grey, 3DV Lavender, Red, Silver and Tie-Die.
How 'bout this? http://www.bike-x-perts.com/en/produ...cts_id/127194/Originally Posted by endform
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?)
The Miche Supertype (only a touch of set-back):
Doesn't get any sexier. Only 86 grams. Price? 220 pounds.
It's normal setback -- if you have one, you'll notice that the way the seatpost curves is actually the same as any normal setback.Originally Posted by gregg
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.
