It's just the stock seatpost from a Specialized TriCross. The 3T seatpost I'd been using got very scuffed up, so I replaced it, and the new one scuffed pretty easily too, so I just went with this option. It has similar setback and doesn't feel much different. Probably costs me a few grams.

Good move.....love the Thomson stuff. Looks better with a handmade bike imo. Looks great!

New season, new rubber. Open Corsa SC's. So far on the list this year: Longsjo and D2R2 (I'll throw some sort of 28mm tires on for the latter).

Pretty cool that this is one of the first Firefly's, yet it looks just as bad@$$ as the ones they're making today with the new headtube, dropouts, etc. Hope to see this on the road some time (I'm also in the 617).

Took the decals off the race wheels -- first "real" race of the season was this past weekend. Got a quick shot of her:

It just looks so... right. Only the Enve decals are a bit too prominent, so 9.8/10 ;)

Quick photoshop edit:

Do u know the diameter of your headtube, downtube and toptube? The bike looks very proportionate. Your headtube looks like a 1 1/4 ones with CK devolution. Is this correct?

That looks to me like a 1-1/8" head tube.
