OK - Need advice on a seat post and saddle.

They'll be on a carbon bike. Also. I would prefer not to have a saddle that has stitching on the surface. Ti rails would be nice

One more thing ... I read a review where adjustability was a problem.. Would not want to run into that if possible.

Cheers and Thanx in advance -

The ITM Milennium post is available in black aluminum or carbon fiber. It has one of the best 2-bolt clamping systems on the market. Allows fore/aft adjustment without disturbing the saddle angle and a separate bolt for angle adjustment. The carbon version is about $90 at www.txcyclesport.com.

Saddle are far too individual to make recommendations. If I want a comfy saddle, I get an SDG. The all Kevlar covers are very durable. For a lightweight saddle I've got a Selle Italia SLK which has no stitching and a relieved center. It's tolerable for a lighweight saddle, but not nearly as comfortable as an SDG Comp Ti.
