    I think all nitto posts are setback.

    How much do you need? What is your budget? Most seatposts are set slightly back. If you are going for more, there is always Thomson. Profile makes (made? do they still?) a seatpost with a ton of setback if you need something drastic.

    If short setback is what you are looking for thomson is the way to go. But is is only about 10mm. If you need the more standard 25mm then Selcof has the best design out there in my opinion. Other than that Easton would be my second pick if you want alloy. If for some reason you need 35mm of set back then last I looked FSA was the best game in town. Pricey but if you need that for you fit then it's worth it.
