eBay or Craigslist. Since those are somewhat hard to find parts you may have to pay quite a bit.

You could also try a "Want To Buy" listing on CL, a collector may have some parts that they want to sell off.

Post in our "ISO and For Trade thread parts 2 and 3" in the main C&V forum here:

Yeah, those are somewhat oddball parts to find really high end versions of (especially the post.) If you had a 27.2 post you'd have about a million options.

Have you really upgraded everything else that you've gotten to the stem and seatpost? How is the rest of the bike equipped? I usually focus on important areas first like the wheelset, crank, brakes (if necessary) and of course saddle and pedals.
