I landed (don't remember when or where) a gorgeous SR copy of a 2 bolt Campy seatpost with crest and no fluting. First and last I've seen and definitely a top notch little gem. Also have a Suntour Superbe Tech derailleur. Only one I've seen also. Shifts quite well, but I understand they were finicky and unreliable. Oh well, purty and strange.
