Awesome.

But, not being a German speaker, where is the buy it now button?

Or do I need to ring them?

Thanks!

I find the Ritchey Stubby that came with my Scott Addict ISP dreadfully heavy and unsightly. The setback is too much and it weighs as much as my 300mm USE Alien Carbon seatpost on my previous bike. I even rub my (rather skinny) legs against them while pedaling, although it didn't bother me so much as their looks.

I much more prefer the looks of the lesser setback model, although it'll never make us as fast as Cav, who uses this particular version on his Addicts. ;)

Personally, my saddle is too far back for the NoRa to work, and I'm probably not the only one...

My German wife couldn't find anywhere on the site to purchase the ISP head. Then again she didn't spend a ton of time looking around.

I emailed NoRah and got a very quick and friendly reply saying sorry but they don't sell outside Europe because their product insurance doesn't cover it.

Rats.

Maybe you can get someone in Germany to order one and then forward it to you.

a lot of material used. carbon/kevlar/steel.
height/angle adjustable.
friggin heavy too.

I also have a full carbon stubby for my new frame model. a bit heavier than Ritchey but better adjustability. pic coming soon.

Where did you find the picture of the FSA SL-K "stubby"?
Wonder if they release a lighter version in the K-Force range too?

FSA will also release aero shped K-Wing "stubby":

Scott USA finally wrote me back:

Quote:
Brian,

Through Scott dealers, you can purchase Ritchey Stubby seat clamps that match the seatmast diameters on the Scales and Addicts.

any idea what diameter seatpost the Scale and Addict use?

At least the Ritchey looks like it will actually hold the saddle. Those weenie clamps focus all of the force on a very small area. Sort of scary. My Thomson post (not stubby -- I don't have an ISP) has a broad contact area, which I find reassuring.

FSA.Taiwan sent me the picture..
I haven't heard of any K-Force range stubby so far.

The Thomson clamp is definitely one of the best I've seen.

You can buy one, cut it, bore out the post, cut a slot in it, and attach a sp clamp.

Though the biggest post they make is a 32.4. It'll work for smaller diameter isp bikes
