I need a carbon seat-post with 0 setback. There are a lot of them out there, but almost all of the ones I've seen take up too much real estate along the rails (front to back). When they're too wide, I can't get the saddle where I want it (nose to BB setback).

I need something like the Bontrager XXX Race seatpost, but they don't come in 0 setback.

I'd appreciate any suggestions.

It's the last piece I need to finish out my new EVO:

I have a Token superlite. Mine's oversize for my regular SS but I think your bike takes a 27.2mm?

One source http://www.tufonorthamerica.biz/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_100&products_id=632

Graphics came off with some 800 and 2000 grit paper. It's 350mm long so can be cut down safely too.

There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

That looks a lot like the Q2 post I have in the garage, which is too wide.

Do you mind taking a measurement from the back to the front of the clamping surface?

Someone pointed me to Enve, and that looks like a winner.

the bontrager xxx lite comes in a no setback, ive been using one on my supersix. Im getting rid of it actually because I just bought a fm066sl frame that takes a 27.2 seat post.

If I recall correctly, a Ritchey 1-bolt post would be a bit lighter than the Enve post, this being weight weenies and all.... Clamping area isn't overly wide either.

I gave my post to my father so I can't go and weigh it, but I think my 27.2 post weighed in at something like 150-160g?

I'm not seeing a 0 SB option listed here, under the details tab:

I like lighter, and it's cheaper.

Between the Ritchey, 3T, and Enve - are they all about equal in terms of clamp adjustment and ease of setup?

I need to replace the one I have on there now, so I may as well get a carbon one.

I have an extra Q2 post, which has a mount like the one you've linked to, and it's too wide.

From my research, the 3T's DiffLock is adjustable in .5 degree increments.

LOL. I was going to remove it, if I went that route.

Syntace and FSA won't work, based on some pics I found of them.

Easton could work, but I think they're heavier than the other options.
