I'm looking for a light seatpost (possibly carbon made) with rear offset for my future Look 585 (27,2x300-350mm, 585 "S" size is much slooping!) and compatible with Tune SpeedNeedle Alcantara.
I want to stay under 160 grams, but the only choice seems be the Control Tech Comp RP that is difficult to find in Italy (also online in Europe!).

Do you have any suggestion?

I'm sorry for my English... :cry:

Check this post. He's searching another size, but almost every manufacturer makes 27.2

It seems be very interesting!
Perhaps two different model of Full Carbon Seatpost WRC05: one with the carbon clamp and one with the aluminium clamp.

The carbon version (see the photo) is very cool and pretty light!

P.S.
Also the Full Carbon Handlebar (ROAD CLASSIC) is pleasantly light. Can be a valid alternative to the Schmolke handlebars?

Sorry for the thread drift, but the lower of the 2 bars is marked as 29mm diameter.

I like the idea of a larger diameter bar (only need one roll of tape then) and it should be stiffer than a 26mm bar, but where do you find a clamp that will fit around it for the brake lever?

The Easton EC-90 kicks ass. My boss has rocked one for the last year and a half and it's solid. It came in at 136 grams and it can be made lighter by cutting the excess mast and replacing the bolt with a ti one. It's not metric, so finding one might be a pita :(
