Price is not an issue, just need the post with the MOST offset currently available on the market today.

Currently using Campy Record ('03), not enough setback.

Selcof bioposition...

The Selcof bioposition probably has the most, but some folks have had trouble getting the nose of the saddle down far enough with the clamp in the back position.

Other possibilities are the Easton EC-70 and the new FSA carbon post. I just ordered the FSA to go on the LOOK KG461, since I will need more setback with a 74.5 STA.

Another solution may be a saddle with a different rail position. SDG saddles for instance can be moved a lot further back than most road saddles.

The post that shipped with my Giant TCR (the carbon aero one) had ridiculous set back. I couldn't ride it because of that. I suspect alot of people had the same issues because I see them listed on ebay all the time... You might be able to get a deal.

What is seatpost setback and what is the advantage or disadvantage of it? I have one of those Giant carbon aero seatposts. Whats wrong with it?
Setback refers to how far the clamp is "set back" from the center of the post. More setback means the seat can be moved farther back and not moved as far forward.
If your seat is where you want it then it's fine. If your seat was all the way forward and you wanted it even farther forward you would need a post with less setback.

it has barely enough offset if you ask me :(
Titec makes MTB Hellbent post which has 2.5" of offset, you can only use it on compact frame.

I Currently use the Easton EC70 carbon post, I do not know the exact amount of setback but it is more than most... Check it out. It also has arguably the best clamp on a carbon post there is...AAA+++

Wallingford bikes might have what you need as brooks saddles suffer from setback problems. I got a campy chorus titanium seatpost and barely got enough setback for my brooks finese. I want to get a brooks b17 for my mountain bike but don't feel like going through another seatpost.

Look ergopost?

I haven't measured the setback on the rear-most setting, but it's pretty far back. Certainly more than most (and definitely more than you've got).
