    Schmolke bars and seatpost?

    Anyone have any experience with Schmolke products?

    They seem insanely light, especially their seatposts (~105g) but also insanely expensive (~$495 for a seatpost, ~$220 for a bar)

    the handlebars are lightest on earth, no contest here. tests in german magazines show they are also durable, best ultralight handlebars available but as you say at a hefty price.

    the seatposts are also very light BUT i'd rather give 1-3g and get a New Ultimate aluminium at half the cost.
    remember they weigh
    27,2/250: 93g
    27,2/350: 127g
    or Heylight HS II posts
    31.6/280: 132g

    these really come very close in weight but have a acceptable price.

    Schmolke really takes profit of the weight-weeenies virus...
