Speedneedles are compatible with Syncros micro-adjust seatposts.

I have one mounted on a new carbon post, the other is mounted on an old titanium model.

I have received my Shannon Carbon post. The Speedneedle fits. I have filed the holes for the railes a little bigger and used bigger bolts.

He said it would be a couple of months before he can re-engineer his existing clamp. I will update when I get anything new.

I have also been told that the AX Europa works but have not tried it personally.

Why didn't you remove the "Speedneedle" sticker?

when I saw the sticker I saw both grams and an edge which may potentially eat into my shorts...

Seems weird to me to spend $$$ on getting your bike lightweight, then leave the sticker on your TSN on the saddle.

Tune speednedle is compatible with X lite metal matrix after some dremel work on the seatpost. See picture below (sorry for the poor quality of the picture:oops: ).

Think there is no limit about usual Speedneedles... but compatibility with stems?! :shock:
I used to care, now I take a pill for that.
