Alright, AddictR1. The seller didn't inform the tracking number yet. I think he will inform on next Monday. I'll let you know. :thumbup:

I found other option for a cheap and light seat post. It's the Far Sport FSA07. About 135g±5g (Ø31.6 x 350mm). Not bad, hmm?! I don't know the price, but I imagine that it is not expensive.

23mm offset? It could be wrong.

The post in the picture has zero offset. Given the weight I expect that post is what an FSA07 is, but I'd verify before ordering.
I suspect the offset number is for an FSA08, which is about 20g heavier.

Sorry to bump an old post.

I found this thread while searching for light budget seatpost options.

Did anyone figure out of this seatpost was in fact a 0 offset? I am hoping it is because I believe it will be the winner for my selection of price and weight.

I recently got a "Climax" carbon post from ebay. 350mm 27.2 diameter zero offset. I can just barely use a zero offset post with a saddle that has long rails- the saddle is back as far as it'll go in the post. Claimed weight was about 125g and it came in at 118g. At $115 it's more cost effective than most WW posts. The ones they have on ebay now have less awful graphics (the graphics on mine are red and white and is spelled "Qlimax"!) but claimed weight is a few grams higher.

I used a different bottom clamp part that has more support for carbon rails which I got from another post. It added about 6g.

This winter I should sand the graphics off and re clear coat it.
