I like to ride with my saddle rotated a bit to the left. Obviously aero seatposts can't be rotated in the frame. Question is, are there any aero road bikes where the clamp can be rotated? Silly question, I know...

I doubt there is one. That's why a classic round seapost can be proven more ergonomical in some cases.

The la pierre aircode is the only which comes to mind.

We occasionally need to send back OEM saddles that have been manufactured as much as 10 degrees out of true. Probably happens a reasonable amount but you only notice on aero bikes :P

Might be worth phoning up the national distributor of your preferred saddle manufacturer and see if they have any warranty returns for that reason that they'd sell you. Or (if your saddles aren't too pricey) you can try and manipulate one to get the twist you want.

There is the Velocite Syn and the new Diamondback IO, and theprior model LaPierre Aircode, but that's all I can think of. I can't recall seeing numbers for the Syn and Aircode, so how well they perform is anyone's guess.
