Indeed. The absence of setback on that Tune Capp renders it completely useless for me. If only that front clamp could be 5mm further back...

Can anyone tell me if theFSA Stubby is valid for an Scott Addict frame?
I want to make the seatpost longer and I see I can do it with this Stubby...

Thanks

Anyone knows who sells this? It is a WR compositi alternative supposed to be 88gr :D
I am not sure if it is good for carbon rails though...

So what is the measured I.D. of the ISP?

Could you take a regular seatpost like a Thompson cut the post domn to 50mm or so, and stick that in the top of isp with a regular seatpost clamp?

With my Pedal Force CG1, you can use a 31.6mm seatpost if desired.

Wow.....

for a weight weenie the idea of ISP does not really pay off for weight savings.
So far the only real solution that I see is the stubby from Oliver @ Nordischer Rahmenbau.

Btw....the 170gr FSA aero stubby will also be used for the Litespeed C series.

But, not being a German speaker, where is the buy it now button?

Or do I need to ring them?

Thanks!

Update: I now have one of the Norah Stubby replacements. Very light, mmmm beautiful and work great (no slipping or any other problems so far (about 2,000km)).

Only problem is fitting. I had to cut down my frame about 20mm to get the same seat height as the Ritchey. Not ideal since it makes it harder to go back to the Ritchey if I need to, but bit the bullet and very happy so far.

A couple of Ritchey Stubby alternatives similar to the NoRa and Tune posted earlier in this topic:

New Ultimate http://newultimate.com
// NEW ULTIMATE CARBON ISP //
This is truly a sensation. At only 79 grams this is one of the lightest ISP head's of the world including the clamp. Made of High Module carbon, CNC alloy and titanium bolts. 30 mm.

Oooh. I like the WR Compositi version with the setback. I can't see it in their website though. Any further news?
