I feel like cutting my seatpost down a little bit but what is the mininium amount of seatpost needed to be left in the seattube starting from the seat clamp? Thanks,

First are you sure that you have your seat at the right hight? You can cut some off but you can't put it back on. There should be at least one inch of post below the bottom of the seattube/toptube joint. And remember the law of the saw, measure twice, cut once.
Junior, do you plan on not growing any more?nm

Are you going to save 20 gm (half a swallow of water)? Do you have a reason for doing this? The weight savings are miniscule and you put a bunch of additional stress on both the frame and the post. Unless you have an MTB post in a road frame, the idea doesn't seem to have much going for it.
