I have the SL6 post with zero offset and Dyneema cords and it's a thing of beauty, working well.
I wonder what the SL7 one weighs? You need to expand the top part for the RS910, which would make it less aero and heavier, especially when the weight is high up like that. I do wonder why they didn´t just put the RS in the seat tube like on a Basso.

The seatpost of my f10 is really zero-offset... I like it, it is perfect for me, but understand some prefer more setback...

Looks like they are doing away with the loop on the T1 and going with a 2bolt clamp

I had a funny scare yesterday. turned bike upside down to get it in the car and saw black threads coming out of my Dyneema cords, so I freaked out assuming they were splitting.
Took a photo to show my mates and drove home.
Worried that they would snap and I'd be bikeless over Xmas I took a closer look.....turns out it's cotton thread from a pair of Rapha winter shorts that split on me a week ago..... :)

Had the same happen with Berd spokes and T1 because I use white rags.

Absolutely delighted! Crazy light, looks cool, and it seems more comfy than the Sworks post.
And it grips the crabon rails better

I emailed Darimo last week and haven't heard back. Is everyone getting their Darimo parts from r2-bike?

I ordered a stem direct from them on 4th Dec, as I did with the previous time I bought their cockpit. R2 might be easier to deal with if they have stock and you don't need anything custom of course. Stem supposed to come on Monday but I wouldn't be holding my breath.

R2 may have more clout getting stock in and their shipping is pretty decent. I have had great shipment delivery times from them. On r2 website, it says 2-4 weeks...which is where Darimo is...so probably best to go to the source instead of a third party where you can lose another 2-4 days here and there. I just find it odd that I haven't received a response at all...and its been more than weeks. So either they are backed up or not answering emails due to holidays? unsure at this point.

People who are "in the know" with Darimo etc, any news on a 2020/2021 Supersix seatpost being produced? Do I have an alternatives to Darimo for a lighter seatpost than the carbon one that came with my hi mod?

Cheer!
