does this really weigh 140 grams in the 300mm length?? anyone use this post? That would be a super light post when cut down to 210mm or so.

Hi if the don´t that you musn´t cut it up I think it´s Ok ?
But how can they a seatpost in two different lenght , same diameter and same weight.
Check this out www.fujibikes.de
go on "Sattelstütze" it´s for Seatpost, and while you´re there take a look at this cool saddle there you go for "Sattel".

I spoke with the guy from Fujibikes Germany and the Seatpost is something around 125 euros.Another interesting Thing is tha they have at complete International Store list where you can the Controltech Parts.
You´ll find it at www.fujibikes.de for Germany and Luxembourg and at www.controltech.com for the rest of the World.

Thanks Toko, how did the clamp/head look? Alloy or carbon? Not shoddy like Deda Blackstick I hope?
