Hi to all!

I'm looking for some help - I would like to get as many standard seatpost clamps as possible, in order to develop a carbon replacement.

We already produce on request the carbon clamp for Pinarello F12 (the same as for F8 and F10) and it saves around 25g compared to the original setup.

I would really appreciate your help if there is any bike model with a heavy seatpost saddle clamp design. I'm happy to make a carbon replacement for those who could borrow such clamps for a few days :thumbup: thanks!

Regards,
Jure

Though I don't have tcr/pp isp, I do know their clamp are very heavy. A lot of tcr/pp isp owners should be happy to provide the dimensions.

I have your Pinarello carbon saddle clamp on my F10. Great product.

I would also like to see one manufactured for the Colnago C64.

It's all downhill from here, except for the uphills.

I have giant TCR with ISP, would indeed be nice to see more lightweight solution. But I cannot miss the clamp for a while

Trek's Emonda SLR has an awful seatpost as a whole, but the saddle clamp is 50 grams or more. The clamping hardware is nothing special, just likes of Tarmac or Enve, but I'd be surprised you can create anything even worse.

This is great as I thought you stopped making these altogether. I can send my S-Works Tarmac version.
2015 Pinarello F8: 13.05lbs/5.915kg
2016 Rca: 11.07lbs/5.048kg
2018 Rca
2018 S-Works SL6 Ultralight: 12.03lbs

Hi,
thanks to all!
I already get one from Giant thanks to Mr Simon J. who delivered it already :thumbup:
We'll see what else could we do, as far as I see some of the Colnago bikes use Deda seatpost, also Bianchy Oltre has a system which could be made much lighter... We'll see what could we do.

If you have anything you could miss for a few days please just drop me an email info(a)berk-composites.com or my personal jureberk92(a)gmail.com, thanks!

Basicy all we need is the lower craddle diameter (so that it can fit perfectly on the seatpost) and on the upper clamp we just need the distance between both bolts

Thanks!

Looking forward to a lightweight version of the TCR clamp. Are these available yet?
