    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?)

    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.
