          Comments about Thomson Elite Road Seatpost:

          I bought this post because the stock post (Ritchey) slipped down a lot as I rode, and it was the correct size, at least it was labeled as such.

          I bought the Thomson because it is not smooth, hoping this design would keep the post from slipping as I rode. After 200+ miles, it has not moved at all. It is great, and significantly lighter than the stock post.

          Why buy carbon?

            Comments about Thomson Elite Road Seatpost:

            I just bought my second Thomson, but only because my new frame has a larger diameter seat tube. But there was no question as to which seatpost I wanted, Thomson. It's light weight, strong, durable and affordable! I've seen other heavier and comparably weighted carbon seatposts for more than 2x's the price. All you're [over]paying for with those carbon posts is the bling factor. Sorry, but I'll take function over style any day. And really, it looks just as good as the carbon posts, if not better. Stop spending big $$$ on bits and pieces that just look good and start spending more time on your bike!

                Like the other guy said...install and forget! This is one of the most dependable components I have purchsed. I train and race (Ironman) on one bike and this post has seen numerous saddles and configurations. It keeps repeating and performing. There may be others that are a few grams lighter, but none that are more depenable. Great looking too.

                  I am 61 years old. Bicycles have been my primary transportation since 1969. I have been racing since 2004 (mtb/cyclocross). Other seatposts work, but these pretty much set the standard. You cannot get a better seatpost. They balance all elements very well (weight, ease of use, strength etc.) Buy one, install, forget it.
