I was a little tired of my white Romin saddle (after one season, it had gotten dyed blue in some areas from my bibshorts, which just looked like dirty white).. So in the switch to black, I upgraded a few things: First was to a Romin Pro; then I put on some Parts of Passion seatpost yolks to replace the stock Deda; threw in some titanium M6 screws from Toronto Cycles; and Finally a MCFK seatpost collar. 120g was the total savings. I'm psyched with the change, and like the stealth look. Now I need to switch my bar tape to black (waiting on some new shifters first); and I'm almost good to go...I'm also waiting on a 2nd Arundel cage, some Red Tune Skewers, and a new headset topcap.

pls adjust the seat clamps so that the bolts are vertical. pic 1 hurts my eyes.

otherwise - cool.

Took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about.. Unfortunately for your eyes, Deda designed the piece that the screws slide through to have an angle, so that the screws sit at an angle. I think the reasoning for this is so the top yolk clamps somewhat clamp over the bottom clamp -- creating some kind of perpendicular force or something.. or I could be way off, and it means nothing.. :lol:

Thanks for the comments though!
