I have to swap out the aero carbon seatpost that came with my tcr due to too much setback. What should I expect the LBS to give me in exchange? bottom of the line carbon post? higher end USE, thompson, campy? something in between?

A while back I wrote what I hope to have been a damning review of the campy carbon seatpost (see: reviews, seatpost). Too flimsy and way too expensive. You're much better off with the Thomson Elite, the non setback one of course. Stronger and much more affordable, and available in a 350 mm length.
Good luck. Luke. Amsterdam. www.iwaarden.com
