I'm looking for a superlight seatpost -- NOT carbon -- that has a similar setback to the campy record carbon post. Anyone have a favorite to suggest?

Thompson Elite rocks the Casbah! I believe one of the lightest non Titan. or carbon super strong too at 180 grams!!!

I believe about $60 bucks try Excel or Texas cyclesprot
I 2nd the Thomson, but setback was an issue...collinsc

and thomson's setback post just looks odd to me. Thomson is the best tho, will never fail you. Great clamp, I dont trust one bolt designs anymore.

too obvious, the Chorus is identical in setback and weights a mere 15 grams more in Ti. Looks good too.

USE ti Alien weights 149 in short length and looks like setback is similar.

unless you don't like the clamp design seems like a no-brainer

Any reason for not using a carbon post? The carbon USE Alien is the lightest I've seen followed by the ti version.
