Varia mount from www.76projects.com : good finish, holds the Garmin tight, not too expensive...

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the Darimo UD glossy seatpost vs the Schmolke Black Edition UD finish?

https://r2-bike.com/DARIMO-CARBON-Seatp ... -mm-350-mm

vs

https://r2-bike.com/SCHMOLKE-Seatpost-T ... -UD-Finish

I'd need 350mm so it's 80g vs 87g and €310 vs €460,

I can't see that it makes sense to go for the Schmolke one, except that from the photos, it looks a bit more aesthetically pleasing (being very picky, after all they are both just black tubes)

May be camera angle, but based on where the mount is positioned, the Varia appears to be pointing at an angle to the horizon. which from my understanding of the Garmin user manual, will effect the effective range.

Darimo UD posts are more dark grey than black.
If you definitely want black then i would suggest getting the Schmolke.

150€, heavier, had more rail damages issues with those metal yokes and can’t choose the finish. Quite a quick selection to me.

3T Strada finally?

Why is he hiding the craddle area? Maybe a new dynema-based craddle for setback seatposts?

Specialized sl6 and sl7 with 15 to 20 mm offset.

Yes it's a selfish answer.

Here is the seatpost on my F10. Sorry for the poor photo with all shadows...

Trying to order a post for F12, but Darimo says they only have zero offset for Dogmas. Although they say that their zero offset actually have some offset :D. Can you ellaborate, is your post more like a 10-15mm offset or 0? I don't want 0mm, but 10-15mm would be fine. Thanks.
