What 25mm seatpost would you recommend? There are not many choices out there.
Thanks

Look Ergo Post has worked for me. Pretty sweet how you can adjust the setback and I think more seatposts should have that feature which is like an adjustable top tube to make your bike fit perfect in every kind of condition. If you want to add TT bars you just move it forward, if your doing a major hill climb you move it back.

U.S.E. Alien posts come in aluminum, titanium, and carbon in the 25mm size. I have been quite happy with my carbon post. I had no problems with the setup despite what some have said.

Can't speak for the aluminum and ti, but nearly everyone I have talked to about the carbon has hated the clamp design. I have two friends who have had that post go belly up in the middle of a ride. USE recommends replacement every year for that post. Hmmm, that ought to tell you something.
