Adjustable seat post

Got the Surly LHT complete and the seatpost does not angle my Brooks 67 up very much. Whats a decent adjustable seatpost for it?

RaceFace Cadence seatpost or Salsa Shaft. Both are relatively inexpensive and have systems that decouple the seat clamp from the tilt adjustment. The RaceFace is a little easier to use.

I'll second the Salsa shaft. I was never excited about seatposts until I got one.
