Thanks suggestion cerro, that looks like a good post, I only worry that it might be a little to glossy for the bike. I really cany find any seatposts by any of the major brands out tehere. The shimano vibe one seems decent. I don't know why I'm so bothered by the argon seatpost, I could use a little more setback and it is quite heavy. I guess the fashion-weenie thing to do would be to get the Deda Super Zero but don't see any reason other than that to get it.

Been working on some carbon saddles up at the shop based on the Arione that are ~100 grams with carbon rails and some with ti rails . Had one with a nice UD finish that looked great. Pics to come soon.

how tall are you and how much does the top of the saddle distances from the BB?

thanks!

You still using the deda bars or are you using something different?
