Probably with a 3t Arx team stem(red stripe) and either ergonova bars or a FSA wing pro compact bar.
31.6mm UD gloss carbon with mild setback(5-20mm)
not too $$$ and not too much heavier than a Thomson elite.
The reference point in terms of weight/adjustability and overall reliability is Thomson, I just want to try something different.
The first thing that came to mind is the Doric team, but I've read bad reviews about the clamp.
Same with the Bontrager XXX lite (clamp mechanism not solid and rails too short).
The 2 current ones I'm contemplating are the Syntace P6 and the Fizik Cyrano. Both supposedly have great clamps and overall reliability and not too $$$. Weightwise they are not spectacular but reliability>>weight.
Both the Thompson and the Dorico are cut to about 233 mm to the rails.
The Thompson was 153 gms with its stock steel bolts
The Dorico was 210 gms with its stock titanium bolts
If you are interested in my Dorico, and the length will work for you, PM me,
the syntace p6 full carbon is awesome, but somewhat heavy. fizik's is alright, but i would expect them to be able to make a carbon post with a one-piece head these days.
I can't imagine you care more about looks than about 50 grams.
