There will only be a setback version of 25mm.
I need a non of small setback version (now I have the 8mm version).

I was thinking the same thing!

Looks like it's 34.9 only. No 30.25 for an Addict :(
I wonder if Geoff can source a special :lol:

@5 8 5, I have already asked!

Besides us, nobody cares whether or not they can save a few grams, because they have a weight limit anyway. They have had enough trouble with the existing version of the Ritchey mast topper (which they use in an 'unbranded' version). Apparently, even when torqued to the recommended limit, the thing still can slip on cobbled races, causing the nose of the saddle to rise.

Apparently the Ritchey is a very unimpressive 105 grams.

I got a black Tune Cappy in 30.25mm for my Scott Addict from Fairwheel Bike in Arizona 2 weeks ago. it was very well-made, 73 grams and has NO SETBACK. It put me 5/8" further forward over the pedals. With much sadness, I returned it to Fairwheel for refund. I am still using the Ritchey but I am still looking for a lighter weight alternative. The Woodman IT would do it but I can't locate it anywhere and Woodman does not respond to e-mails.

I think it is very interesting that Woodman has this great product but no one can find it. It is manufactured by tenonten in Taiwan.

On another note, KCNC has some new cappy types coming on the market, with and without offset. Its called the majestic. But not on the the kcnc website, saw it at fairwheelbikes.com.

It's ugly and its setback version is not that light either.

Ah, ok didn't see a weight. So for non-setback Tune cappy. For setback Woodman and good luck finding it.

The KCNC ISP topper is cobby looking. It uses two pinch bolts to secure the head to the mast and consequently has doubled the reinforced areas. No other mfg has needed 2 fixing bolts. It is also NOT available in 30.25mm for a Scott Addict ISP. Fairwheel just received this item and said there is no immediate plan for a 30.25 version. BTW, Weight saving, for the offset version is less than 1 oz from the Ritchey Topper.

Here's Fairwheel's link:
http://fairwheelbikes.com/kcnc-majestic ... -4089.html

Still hoping to find a Woodman IT somewhere.
