Seatpost for 07 Fuji Aloha 1.0.

Does any one know of a seat post that will fit an 07 Fuji Aloha 1.0. that will give a more forward
position than the stock one? Thanks.

Unfortunately it is probably frame specific on the Fuji. Why do you need a more forward position though? It's already at 76 degrees. Pushing your saddle forward should get you another degree or two.

Would Profile Design's FF post fit?

A few in my tri club ride with these and swear by them as a cheap and easy way to get forward. They also make a carbon fiber version if weight is a concern.

No because it's an aero post with no round section.

Ah, I was looking at the '06 model.

Perhaps a longer saddle pushed forward then, though the spec'd saddle looks pretty tri-specific already.

If the post shape is symmetrical you could flip it around. Otherwise you're at the hands of Fuji to create something.

Will the 2.0 seatpost fit? I know that its seatpost is able to be flipped to put you further forward. I belive it has one of the slackest angles in the industry though. Like 73.5 degrees or something like that.
