Modern 26.6 Seatpost

Does any company currently make an alloy high-quality (light), 26.6 seatpost?

I'm seeing Kalloy, of course, but I want something in the 250-280g range. I also see some N.O.S. Gipiemme's, but they are all fluted (I want non-fluted.) I'm looking for a length no more than 225mm, offset from 15-25 degrees.

If the new setback design from Thomson ever becomes more than vaporware, it should fit that bill nicely.

Otherwise, you could get a Kalloy Uno pipe-type seatpost and a Brompton seat clamp. That should be plenty light...

That's what I'll do! (I didn't know Thomson was planning on a set-back seatpost). Thanks.

I actually meant something like this (out of stock, but should be order-able at any bike shop with a QBP account), and one of these, from Brompton.

I quite dislike the toothed 'micro adjust' seatposts that are ubiquitous on less expensive bikes, and while the Brompton part is not cheap, especially for what you can find at any old bike shop, it is lightweight and infinitely adjustable, something that that pattern saddle clamp is not often capable of.
