I have a MASI criterium frame built in the 1960s which I used for amateur racing in those days. Now I am 50 years older,fatter, and arthritic. I had a Campagnolo seat post with a clamp that was set back off center about a 1/2 inch to the rear from the center of the down-tube. I had the seat as far forward as I was able but wanted even more forward adjustment. I read with some trepidation the problems some had with diameters of the seat post and seat angle problems; but, since 93% of reviewers who bought it were pleased with the post, I ordered it. Boy am I glad. The seat post diameter 27.2 mm fit perfectly to the down-tube and the extra length [400mm] allowed me to move the seat up a few mm higher than the Campagnolo post allowed and the Thompson seat clamp zero off-set from down-tube center gave me the ability to place the seat 1/2" towards the front of the bike all my prayers were answered. Less stress on my arthritic knees and the forward seat placement eliminated numb hands...
I’ve been slowly building my own personal ‘hot rod’ go-anywhere CX bike. For this build I’m going for pure awesomeness, so I’m carefully picking each component. The requirements for each component are simple: they have to function really well and they have to look awesome.
Next up was the seatpost. I mulled over a bunch of various seatposts for a couple days. Should I go for carbon? Should I go for aluminum? What brand should I get? What color? During my search I kept coming across Thomson, which seems to be the gold standard for a really solid no frills yet still awesome seatpost, so I ordered one.
This thing is perfect! The craftsmanship, quality and finish are way above average. I really dig how easy it is to adjust the saddle angle. With seatposts in the past I always had a problem getting it just right but with the Thomson it’s painlessly simple. I can’t figure out why this isn’t the standard way to set the...
Bought the straight version of the elite seat post over the setback. I wanted to be able to bring the saddle a bit more forward then I could with the setback post I had. Great quality(USA designed and manufactured). Fair price(amazon was $30 cheaper then my local shops). Lastly the way you adjust the tilt and fore-aft placement of saddle is so simple and easy yet holds strong. Highly recommend the Thomson Elite Seatpost. If you have the extra cash, spring for the Masterpiece. It's even lighter and just as strong. One last comment: just make sure you get the right size post for your frame.
