I'm looking to try an new seat post with a little more set back. Right now I have an older ultegra seatpost with a pretty standard amount of set back I'm thinking a little more might put me in a better position

FSA K force light?



I use a no set back post.However,I have seen a few guys that are really long legged(femur)on the local rides that have these posts.They appear to have PLENTY of set back.Finish is nice too.

Here's another FSA model with more set back. FSA SL-220

I don't know about this post from personal use, but I came across this one while on a search of seat post with more set back.

Another option is the TruVativ Team. I have the single bolt model, plenty of setback here.

The specs on the Sram page say that is has 25mm of set back, but it looks like more than that. I wonder if they're measureing it to the front of the clamp.

to the original poster:

also keep in mind how far forward or how large the clamp is. I just put on the new Shimano Ultegra 6600 seatpost, the setback from the center of the post to the center of the cradle is 24mm , but since the clamp extends so far forward, I couldn't get the saddle as far back as on the previous post which has a center to center set back of 20 mm. the saddle position difference is 2-3 mm in the opposite direction of what you'd think just from looking at the measured setback. Just something to keep in mind. Wish I had known this before hand. I think my position if fine now, but my seat is pushed all the way back on its rails.

General: thanks for all the replies. I currently have my seat slammed back as far as it will go and i still am positioned forward of where I want to be

Thats It

The "Truvative Team" looks like the very post I need for my bike. I've been using the "Kalloy" uno with my Brooks Pro, and eventhough it does have some set-back it's not quite enough. Anyone know where to get the "Truvative Team"??
