M2racer seatpost can filed but only the lower clamps not the upper clamps which is made of something harder (maybe ti). I'm not sure if it can be file.

Doesn't work with a Bontrager Triple X- Lite post, this is a side clamp. Anyone know if it works with an FSA K-Force Lite?

Sorry about posting this in two sections.

Any more seatposts we can add to either the list of posts that work or do not work?

I have been in touch with Albert Bold from Bold Precision and he is planning on making a clamp that would work with the SpeedNeedle. I sent him my saddle so he could work on it. He said it would be a couple of months before he can re-engineer his existing clamp. I will update when I get anything new.

I have also been told that the AX Europa works but have not tried it personally.

I have a Schmolke post and have absolutely no complaints about it, but I recently purchased an M2Racer post... 27.2 x 280mm @ 98 grams... a similar design and feels just as comfortable for alot less money... If I were to recommend a post, it would be the M2Racer... great value for a superlight post...
