And here's another standard seat post from Performance that is on sale for $15 - minus the 10% BF coupon for $13.50. It's a few ounces lighter than the Kalloy.

It is a single rail saddle like the 67 and will mount on any modern seatpost. Go with an inexpensive seatpost because they do the same job as the other$.

I have two 67's and never noticed any break-in issues. They were perfect right out of the box. Many people find them so.
