Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Aluminum Seatpost

Hey everyone, I am looking for an aluminum seatpost in a 27.2mm size to replace the Kalloy Carbon post that came with my Orbea Dauphine.

The stipulation being I want as LITTLE setback as possible, preferably none.

Any recomendations?
