    Salsa has been working on a prototype seatpost for a while, they will be bringing to market soon. The "Odlid". The prototype I saw was black, and had a unique support structure of vein like features running along the shaft. You could adjust he ride quality, based on how rough the terrain you were riding. Doing so was accomplished by a dial at the base of the shaft. If you turned the dial up to the max setting, you could really feel the vibractions in the trail, on the low setting....it's almost like there were no vibrations at all.

    The only downside I noted was that it required (4) "D" batteries to operate.

    Saw the same thing back in late Oct. only they had a self charging system using the roughness of the trail, the battery pack was mounted low in the seat tube to keep the weight more centralized.

    Nothing like making your frame so stiff that you need to design something to make it more comfortable. And, bonus, it adds weight.

    Oh wait, doesn't a steel or ti frame add some weight and comfort, without the need to the latest gee gaw?

    I'm sure it will only be available on bikes with electronic XTR.

    Oy....

    How about a rack that's 1/2 the weight, and 2x the carrying capacity of the Alternator, and it doesn't have a 'Tubus' logo on it?

    The real innovation is that post is double sided. The two ends are slightly different giving a different ride depending on which one you insert in your frame.

    Do you use carbon seatpost paste with it?

    And will there be a hub dynamo model for continuous "comfort"?
