Availability of a Use Alien Aero seatpost

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

Availability of a Use Alien Aero seatpost

I ordered a USE Alien Aero carbon seatpost (size M) from my local LBS around 2 months ago, but even after numerous calls to their distributeur they still are unable to get this seatpost.

Ofcourse i'm getting pretty sick of waiting for this long, so i'm wondering if anybody knows an (online) bikeshop that has a USE Alien Aero carbon seatpost in size M on stock ??

The only dutch online place I can think of is www.sportpost.nl
They generally have a lot of stuff on their site. If you can't find someone who can get you one then I think the distributor is Vertex sports and you could try e-mailing them for a stocking dealer. (vertex@wxs.nl)

Well, the problem is that Vertex themself can't deliver it, my LBS ordered it more than 2 months ago at vertex, and every time my LBS called them they told him it should be here next week..

Ofcourse this didn't happen..

So i'm now looking for (online) shops abroad, i found a couple of places in the UK that should have it in stock, and i'm waiting for a confirmation that they really have it on stock.

Chainreaction doesn't seem to have the aero seatpost, only the regular ones..

Salden doesn't sell USE i guess as they are not in the pricelist..

And as i'm dutch myself i guess i should be able to read dutch ;-)

Deeside seems to sell them, i'll send them a message to see if they really have it in stock.

Thanks,

But they only have the Small version, and i need the Medium one ;-)

But i've already placed an order with another UK Company which has all of the USE seatposts on stock, and it should arrive here at the end of the week...

So my new bike will finally be complete... after 2 months of waiting (for nothing) :-\

Thanks everybody!
