Aluminum or titanium (black if aluminum), 27.2, at least 350mm long, great to new condition. Fine with used, as long as there's minimal marking above min. insertion line.

Pretty sure I spec'd the Black AL 350mm one on my dad's bike when I built it. Planning to rebuild his contact points shortly so will look at pulling and let you know in the next day or so if you are not already sorted.

Setback or straight. I am pretty sure my lbs has a nos black setback.

The originals were all setback. That's what I'm looking for. Thanks!!!

I have one in aluminum and one in titanium, but they may be shorter than 350mm. (Was the standard road size 270mm?) I can measure them to check-

I have a ti one, at least 350mm possibly longer...

but the proprietary bolt used to adjust seat angle is stripped. If you can get around that, you can have the post for a few bucks + shipping but that's probably a deal-breaker.

any shop with an EAI account can order a new one for you

They changed the design years ago; the new ones don't have the angle adjustment bolt that I want. But thank you! : )

Could work...is the bolt itself stripped or the hole through which it threads?

Checked with my friend at the lbs. He thinks it sold but he is still looking.

The bolt itself I believe. I'll double check.

I get that you are looking for this but my old employee has a really nifty scar, 'down there'(he told me about it, didn't look-yyeewww) when the adjust bolt on one of these broke, not unusual..so...be careful!!

I have a used ti one, but it is short, like 210. pm if interested.

Y'all use what you want, but it's Thompson or Nitto-made, two bolt stuff for my money. :-)
