Drew over at Engine cycles makes them. They look great but I'm guessing are pretty heavy.
Actually they are very light....Remember. Steel is density challenged but then again the 953 post Engin uses is about 5 times stronger than Aluminum therefore thinner. A road post is about 230 grms with hardware.

I believe these are not for general public consumption so don't fire off e-mails to him asking for one.

just like the title says, any one making steel seatposts? for a custom project. Thanks
Brooklyn Machine Works used to have a service where they would weld your seat rails directly to a custom post. Back in the day, on the old website. They'd probably still do.

You can get just about any machine shop to make you one up if you need a particular unique diameter. Just get something like a USE seat clamp kit or the Thomson equivalent and then have your post machined up to suit.

Why do you want a custom steel seatpost? To repro some vintage look? To match a really weird diameter or uncommon length? For uber strength?
