I've been a big fan of Thomson stems forever. They are strong and bombproof, but mine has the graphics for positive mounting. The new build lets me flip and slam the stem, so I did the sharpie mod. Turned out pretty good in my option and was easy to do. 99% alcohol takes it right off if I change my mind too.

The Specialized CG-R post is about the ugliest post ever made and while it was gold and comfortable it was also a boat anchor. 450mm long.
307.9g with most of the weight in the head.

The Enve post fit the bill at 400mm and 20mm offset. I looked at a lot of other posts and this one popped up for a great deal and is just as comfortable, as confirmed by my butt-o-meter.
213.2g
