hello!!
all description and photos of my last work, at this link......

perfetto!

i think this is international and also understood by those talking only english...

anyway -it looks nice. well done. BUT it seems a rather short post. what is it's lenght? i'd guess ca. 31.6/250mm, right?

and for even lighter results you should have opted for a Heylight clamp. it's the clamp from the Heylight HS II seatpost:
http://heylight.de/produkte/sattelstuetzen_superleicht.htm
that's the lightest clamp and gets also used by german Schmolke on its ultralight TLO seatposts. the clamp itself weighs just 41g

and you better get white AX-Lightness saddles as the speedneedle is really bonehard and uncomfortable in comparison.

Where did you find the new clamp? It looks like its from an Extralite post. That is an awsome post now!
for one Extralite seatpost "the post ul2"...

If I could dig up a similar clamp I could do that on an FSA carbon post. I assume it also has an aluminum shim inside so it would be safe.
the seatpost FSA carbon ........is this??

Does anyone know where I could obtain a similar clamp. The Heylight or the Extralite clamp would be great. I would only really be interested if the price werent out of this world. The idea would be a very custom looking budget post that weighs next to nothing.

Yeah Morris_M thats the FSA post I was thinking of. I can get one quite cheap and I suspect like your ITM the clamp is what weighs so much.

I admire your work its brilliant. I have no doubt I could do the same thing. Its just a matter of having the right tools.

Morris...bravissimo!

Such care and fine workmanship! You must have spent some time filing the top of that post to get it that smooth and round.
What did you use to cut the post?

I'm surprised the stock clamp is so heavy. I had no idea.

Nino, how much would that saddle cost me in/to California, USA? what's the weight?
My friend has a speedneedle, and he likes it. i test rode it once, and it was not too bad. I ride a SLR 135g that weighs 140g. It is sharp and cuts into my thighs. It is fine for riding, other than long steady seated climbs.

ax-lightness are damn expensive. the Tune speedneedle is binehard and in my opinion not comfortable.there is the new Tune Concorde that is like a sofa and much cheaper than the AX-Lightness...

M2racer weighs between 93-98grams depending on lenght. Although I do like the look of your seat post but a lighter seatpost is my priority.
hey, it's about a WHITE seatpost.
if you need it light you don't even need a carbon seatpost at all. the New Ultimate seatpost is the same weight as the M2Racer and is out of Aluminium...and you can get it in polished silver too.

The NewUltimate and the M2racer are awsome posts yet I dont belive they come in 31.6 like Morris_M and I need. You would need a shim that weighs what 20g? His post is also a little longer so if you trimm it weight will go down even more.

Does anyone know of a good deal on a 31.6mm post? A USE Alien would be great if the price is right.
