I hate the ISP, although I do think we are not that far away from a bike with fully intergrated ,bars ,stem seatpost seat. one great big lump of carbon.

I know what you mean but I think I'll always prefer the convenience/customization of separate seatposts and stems. I have a habit of leaving saddles installed on my seatposts and swapping them across various bikes...saves a lot of time when I can just have small, color-coordinated marks on a seatpost for each bike and not have to measure when I switch saddles. For instance, my "commuter" seatpost (steel) has a rear rack attached to it with panniers for groceries (if it didn't weigh 4 pounds I'd consider leaving it on all the time)...30 seconds and I'm ready to go

Ridley said something about that a while ago. Called "Phoenix" or something like that.
