Hello,

A month ago I bought my supersix with a ultegra group. I build it up with force and it is almost ready. I only need to cut the fork and buy another seatpost.

I like 2 seatpost.

1. Engage revit

Pro's:
- light
- long (can use it also on my mtb)

No go:
- my cockpit is zipp service course
- don't know if the clamp from the saddle is good.

2. Zipp speed sl

Pro's:
- match with my cockpit
- nice finish

No go:
- it's shorter and weight is higher (185gr)
- I don't like the red in it.

What seatpost do you choose en looks the best on my bike?

Engage, as it is lighter. Then get the matching engage stem.

Change the stem is a no go! I have a Tilquist mount for my garmin and I like that one very much!

The engage at least has the same finish to match the stem....I would still go with the full Zipp. I assume your handlebars are also Zipp? If not you might as well go for the full mismatch.

The service course SL matches the stem perfectly, but I guess your worried about the 30gm weight penalty
