Zipp Service Course Seatpost $54.95
Dial in the fit.
Zipp’s innovative, low-profile clamp provides a wide range of adjustments to both angle and for-and-aft position. This adjustment range makes the Service Course Seatpost suitable to a wider range of riders and lets you dial your fit and feel. That isn’t the only feature that sets the Service Course Seatpost apart, however.
Zipp engineers paid special attention to the length of the clamp assembly. On the lower portion, it's designed to be a bit longer than what you might see on other seatposts. Essentially, this is to support the saddle rails if you favor to ride at the rearward position. And in this day and age of super-light rails, we view any extra insurance against damage as a welcomed friend.
For this iteration of the Service Course, the seatpost forgoes carbon fiber in favor of a one-piece, 3D forged design. If you pay close attention to the Grand Tours, you'll notice that this is a reoccurring trend in the peloton. The reason is simple. For the cost of a few grams, the seatpost becomes stiffer, stronger, and more comfortable that its carbon fiber counterparts. In fact, we find that road vibration is better dispersed, while power is better conserved during seated exertions.

Do you really find that aluminum seatposts, being stiffer, are more comfortable? The general consensus is that by and large carbon posts do a better job damping than aluminum. This was backed up by Velo Magazine's testing. http://www.velonews.com/2012/12/training-center/technology/from-the-pages-of-velo-getting-the-most-from-your-post_267560/3

Not a lot to say as its intended function is not complicated. Just got this yesterday with my full build. Very, very impressed with the machining and build quality hereof. Highest recommendation.
Fantastic post for the price
This is the second Service Course post I've owned and I couldn't recommend it any higher. Obviously there are lighter posts out there but for the price I think it's hard to beat this one. At only 245g for the 0mm offset post this is an incredible deal.

Picked this up for my commuter. Solid, economical, and looks great on the bike!
No issues with Zipp
Great design, great product, great company. only wish it was a little lighter.
can this accomodate my 7x9 rail seat ?

Love what Zipp has a done here. Just a simple, clean looking post with an easy to adjust clamp that won't break the bank. Doesn't get much more straight forward than this.
