Besides being one of the best bike shops of any kind in NYC (save Bromptons) Conrad's has got to be among the finest Campagnolo shops in the country.

Just purchased a totally foppish seatpost to accommodate the woefully short railed Brooks Pro.

well, now you will have plenty of setback, thats for sure. I about bought one of those once, props to nitto for making a post with that much setback, its expensive, wish other companies made them too because the lugged look won't work on all bikes.

It's really expensive from most places, but I posted a WTB and someone told me about PlanetX having a Nitto sale. It cost me $76 shipped from the UK! Yeah, definitely won't look right on some bikes and I could have easily gone with a lighter saddle/post combo but I'm going with this for now. Just so happens that it matches the custom shaped lugs on my new frame pretty well.

Frame

Scored a Cannondale Optimo frame from my local Freewheelin Bike Community that I am building up to leave on the trainer year round.

Just picked up some Super Moto's in a 26x2.35 for my old Trek 930. They are little tight in the rear, but fit okay.
