    that's sweet... How would durability and price be on those posts... Nino, how do they compare to some of the old alu new ultimate 31.6 posts you sell?? I am really considering one of those light alu new ultimate posts, which I think were close to 116gr right?
    ---(cheap, light, strong)---
    pick two...

    i just asked about the other carbon-sizes. what i already know there is also the 30.9 "specialized" size.

    the aluminium versions weigh:
    27,2/250: 93g
    27,2/350: 127g
    31,6/350: 137g

    the Carbon version is not that much more than the Aluminium! more infos per PM...

    just got some additional info on the Carbon post:

    27,2 will be available as will 30.9 and 31,6
    max rider weight: 90 kilos / 198 lbs
    for Road AND MTB as well!

    These look just like the M2 Racer stuff. Or is it the other way around?
    They do look very nice indeed!

    kind of right, but i use a KCNC only on my winterbike 'cause it is "cheap". on My Scale MTB and CR1 roadbike i use the New Ultimate Aluminium posts. the carbon isn't available any longer than 300mm which is too short and on the roadbike the shortish 250mm roadie-lenght aluminium post is just 93g so even lighter than a shortened carbon post!

    i just got some KCNC posts before leaving for my carribean holidays. the 30,9/350 weighs just 149g. a friend mof mine runs a shop and sells many Specializeds so he is all over those seatposts...

    if you are interested send me a PM after 15th...

    I know they are designing the carbon post in 34,9 x 350mm. So this is longer then 300mm.

    I don't know how much my response will help, but, FWIW ..... only seatpost i've used that uses a clamp system like this was an ExtraLite Post UL. Yes, the seat slid fore/aft and yes, the rails creaked. I even started a thread about this last year with some interesting responses. The same seats used in other seatposts, with differing clamping systems (Race Face, Thomson, others) never moved or made a noise, so i'm assuming it's the clamping type that facilitates this occurence. Honestly IMHO, it stands to reason when you have a good look at what's going on.

    My New Ultimate doesn't slip or creak with these internals/guts. To be honest it did have these problems initially but I wasn't using enough torque, 6 - 10 nm's should work. You may want to apply a little tooth paste to bite into the rails a little too. It's a very popular design in europe afaik.
