You can assume that the post part per cm would be lighter than the average g/cm you calculated since the clamp isn't involved..
the difference in length would be 2 cm... so the best you could possibly take off the deda would be 10g.... but i think that is really ambitious considering the clamp ALWAYS weighs significantly more than the post part... I would bet a nice nice dinner on the USE being lighter at the same length....
All that said...after looking at the clamp on the deda... and LIVING with the clamp on the USE... if i had it to do over again, i'd try the deda instead and live with a few extra grams.... that use clamp is a pain in the ____ (that is assuming the deda is close to the published weight)
As for USE, yes they make light seatposts, and I one at my bike on present, but they do not tell you that the bleeding shim weighs in at 26g (this varies for shim diameter) the one I weighed was for 27.2 frame. That just puts their post in the not so very lite category.
Seems that there is just no easy compromise on this, so I am having a combination done by Axel at ax-lightness, seat and post should be about 130g, now that is worth a smile
well i need to ask why, because I didn't hear about it till after I got my post... and bought a 27.2 and put it in a trek carbon 27.2 hole, and it is working great so far (rough estimate about 3000 miles so far)
and yea.. that combo unit looks sorta to me.... way too painful lookin
But will test ride the ax-ligthness and let all of you know how it goes.
But seats are very personal, so it might not be good to follow another persons advice. Ihave been riding bare carbon for about 2 years, and my butt is used to it by now
i use the AX Lightness Sprint and it does several things:
when the guys see it
when I see the guys
when u ride like a maniac and think u are actually sitting on a cloud
when u get down and notice: Hey, no pain ... ?
All in all: A M A Z I N G !!!
I would love to get the combo, just 500 euros are a bit too much to spend for me at the moment...
