Other small French manufacturers to look for are JPR and Atax. I think the Atax is one of the nicest looking seatposts, ever.

Try Mel Pinto Imports - (Mel is AWESOME !)

++++++++ I've long hankered to find another Satri Gallet, which was an elegant riff on the Campy 2-bolt design. Its neatest feature was that it was "upside-down." That is, the two bolts were accessed from below, instead of that mad, nutty reach in from the top. But, there was a fatal flaw: the bolts (allen keyed, as I recall) screwed into hollow steel cyclinders, so there were four stress points at thread emergence, not just two. The cylinders on mine snapped, rendering the assembly useless except as a club.
