I just built up my Parlee Z5 and got a New Ultimate seatpost for it. My math was slightly off though and I need another 20-25mm setback... Here's what I'm looking for... something that is light (realistically, probably not possible as light as the New Ultimate, but I would like to be close...), something that can handle 165-170 lbs (the heaviest I get in off season), something with about 20-25mm offset, if at all possible white (not a deal breaker though... I can always paint it if I see the need) and I'd like to spend less than $250... is that possible at all? Any recommendations?

... and yes, did a search, but either my search was wrong or it's just not that many threads...

New Ultimate also makes a setback aluminum seatpost.

You can get lighter than the New Ultimate with an Ax Lightness setback seatpost. Most are black but I have seen special order silver. They cost more but will be around 110 grams depending on the length.

Can I use an AX? I'm 165 to 170lbs at my heaviest in the off season (so I enter the season close to max...). I thought AX wasn't strong enough...

It'll probably void the warranty.

Ok, Ax Lightness Daedalus it is. Wish it was white to match the frame, but guess you can't have it all...

That's a bummer that the NU didn't work out :(
Hopefully you can find a deal on the AX :thumbup:

Did already! :D

The New Ultimate works fantastic, it's just that my math was off by about 20mm... When I did my trig I thought I would end up within 2mm of my Look 595, but the zero offset put me my further forward than what I calculated... I re-did my math and found my error... Really too bad, because the NU looks amazing on the Parlee...

One of these?

Not super light, but its solid and has a good clamp.
