I assume by center mount you mean zero setback like a Syncros or Thompson. Well, if your seat tube is 27.2mm diameter you are in luck because Syncros makes a carbon post. Check www.bikeworld.com for it.

Check out Serotta's new carbon post, I not sure if it is center mount or not, I have not been able to find much info on it other than a picture on their web site, I think it sells for around $159.

Fairly inexpensive too. Jenson has the lowest price I've seen, at around $79.

I've had good luck with some of LP's MTB components, although I haven't tried their seatpost.

I'm building up a bike with one now. Haven't riden it yet but put it on a scale and it weighs just 130 grams. It's a center mount.
I'm not so sure...TJeanloz

I'm not entirely certain what is meant by a 'center mount'; but the USE Carbon Alien does have a little bit of setback to it.
