Anyone here have experience with these seatposts, preferably the Al models with setback? I've been to their website and seen that Simoni uses one. I like their ease of adjusting saddle tilt and it's down to the Selcof's (various models) or the ITM Millenium.

Not interested in Campy or Shimano. I already have an American Classic but they're not easily found in the UK and the cost to mail order one is uneconomical.

Thanks in advance

Gary Hobbs, a long-time frame reseller and bike (not frame) builder in the U.S., has supplied the alu model as part of his build kits for a couple of friends of mine. He thinks they are good value, and they like them (or at least find nothing objectionable; it's a kind of "fire and forget" item).

IIRC, Selcof makes Colnago's carbon seatposts.

I've got a Selcof aluminum seatpost on my Bianchi and it seems to work fine. I've also got a Campy Chorus ti seatpost on my Gios, and I can't tell much difference between them. To be honest, though, seatposts are not something I pay a lot of attention to. One seatpost seems to be about the same as another, but maybe I'm missing something. If I were looking for another seatpost, I would pay close attention to the adjustability. It seems like I've always had trouble getting the seat angle just right, no matter what seatpost I've tried. I believe the Selcof post is a little easier to adjust the angle on than the Chorus.
