Interested in buying a zero setback Darimo seatpost for my Cervelo R5 disk. Any negative issues like creaking?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the GC teams using darimo seatposts this season

Does anyone know if Darimo already made a Bar with internal cable routing?
Since their stem is predestined for internal routing in combination with my Fork, this could not only be an available but also ridiculously light solution for my current problem.
I would like to have the cables (brake hoses and Di2) exiting the bar in the clamping region straight into the stem....from there is would be straight forward.

Would that be a 13mm version? Can't understand if there's or not seatback.

edit; by looking at photogalleries at both Tirreno and Paris Nice they are using some new seatpost (see the first 2 bikes in 1st picture) and one looks very close to a Darimo (4th bike on the 2nd picture).

To me it looks without setback.

I emailed Darimo and got the answer that they can do internal brake and gear cable holes. Only caveat is that the bars will still come with the front external cable groove.

I have one seatpost for my Giant Revolt, it's overall perfect. But it seems that you have to tighten your Dyneema® loops after some period. I had an experience when the loops got loosen during a competition, and the seatpost started making some creaking sound all the way around. So if going on a very long-distance ride, you better bring a small allen wrench.

Had to tighten the loops the first couple of rides and since then I haven’t touched it in months.

Any news on 2020/2021 Supersix seatpost from Darimo C36? I think you have contact with Darimo right?

Do you have a photo of it on your Revolt?
