    Zero offset post on 2018 R5?

    Is one available to replace the hideous FSA 25mm offset one?

    Harry - If I recall correctly, I require a zero set back, i.e. completely straight seatpost for my R3 set up. I went with a Specialized S-Works carbon seatpost and got their pave clamps so that the carbon railed Specialized Romin saddle could be used. Love them both, but the latter was best choice for me based on saddle fitting/ sit bone analysis. The Specialized is great because it's completely black with a faint 'S' logo on it, which is covered up by my saddle bag, so it's a very clean look.
    Jens Voigt doesn't complain about what suffering does to him, but suffering constantly complains about getting picked on by Jens Voigt.

    The 2 smallest size R5's have a zero offset seatpost. You can probably order a zero offset seatpost from a Cervelo dealer. Note the 2018 R5 is a 'D' shape seatpost, not round.

    I ended up needing the setback after all! Moral of the story is fits and bike geometry changes over time! Thanks guys
