Clean seat post with no logo?

Need a recommendation for a simple black seat post (27.2) with no logo preferably with no seat back. Closest I'm getting is the Thomson elite but don't care for the lettering.

Don't know that it helps, but you can sometimes remove the printing with acetone. It may affect the finish though, and I suppose in extreme cases it might remove some of the black.

I've got Velo Orange Grand Gru seatposts on five of my six bikes. I prefer the long setback version, but they make a no-setback one as well. All have subtle branding.

As mentioned, use acetone, but use caution, as it can dull glossy (painted) surfaces. I use it all the time to remove branding from frames and components.

They would work very nicely. Cotton balls are another option.
