It seems like Shimano would have a better chance selling them to us non-sponsored folks if there was a black DuraAce or Ultegra seatpost as part of the grouppo.

Krylon Satin black works great...Dave Hickey

Mark the post where the seatpost enters the frame. Tape off below the mark and spray post with Krylon satin black. I've done it with seat posts and quill stems. Works great.
I prefer gloss. (nm)Alexx

I just painted my Icon seatpost that is on my old Klein Quantum Race (second bike). The problem is I painted the entire post and when I inserted it into my seat tube it stuck (even after being lubed). I managed to get it down low enough (using much muscle) and luckily around the right height but it is stuck, and won't budge. I should have not painted the portion of the seatpost that goes into the frame. I guess it's there for good, I don't have any idea how to remove it. Looking back I should have just bought a cheap black seatpost on sale, or taped off the inserted section.....
