Stronger, lighter, and cheaper than most carbon - why buy anything else?
by iammikeDOTorg
Competitive Racer

Simply the best seat posts out there. Instant install on every bike I buy. Light, strong as hell, good looking, outstanding craftsmanship, and half the price of something carbon. You could shave 20g on a VERY high-end carbon post, but is the cost and reliability really worth it?

I have this same seat post on another bike I own and love its adjust-ability. I ordered one for my current bike to replace the Oval seat post that came with my new bike. Not only is the seat level easier to adjust but it is lighter seat post. Great bang for you buck!!

The Best
by chris (TriSports.com Staff)

pThey're not carbon fiber, and they don't have a complex single-bolt adjustment, but the Thomson Elite seatpost is the go-to seatpost when you just want something that works.p

pI've used multiple Elites for many years and never been disappointed. Moreoever, I've sold Thomson Elite seatposts for a whole lot of years and have really only ever seen one warranty claim-and even that resulted from someone driving the bike into the side of a house while it was on the roof of his car. They're quite strong.p

pMy own unscientific testing involved clamping one of those half-bikes for pulling kids to a Thomson Elite, then attaching a trailer pulling two more kids to the half bike and doing a 20-mile ride that included some small but steep climbs and descents. Never, ever do this, by the way.p

pI towed this Train From Hell multiple times, usually with the 'cross bike, but always with a Thomson Elite. I would never have even tried it with another seatpost.p

Have had one for 15 years. Got the original set back. Upgraded another bike to the masterpiece version.

No issues. No loosening. Just about the most solid part of the whole bike. Per dollar, superb value.

Recommended uberhighly.

I use the Thomson Elite seat post on my mountain bike and cross bikes. It works well and is easy to adjust for saddle positions. Nothing fancy about it, but the design is flawless and it competes in weight with many carbon posts.

Purchased the Thomson Elite Seatpost on a whim. I read the reviews and looked at various seatposts. Just to clarify, I am a recreational rider 100 or more miles per week. Actually was excited to get it. When it arrived, compared it with my stock seatpost and of course, no comparison. The weight difference was noticeable and the look is so classy. Goes great with my Brooks saddle.

I think I may be a bike freak or geek.

Though expensive, this is the go-to seat post when carbon isn't appropriate. I like the saddle adjustment, too.

Good-looking, light enough and strong. Thomson got it right the first time. I don't even bother thinking about it New bikes get Thomson stems and posts and King headsets. Move along, nothing to see here....

Functions flawlessly, one of the best posts ever.

This is among the best seatposts on the market. Hasn't changed in 10 years or so, still strong, still light, and comparable in weight/stiffness to most high-end carbon posts out there-but cheaper and more durable.

The lack of setback will mess with your position a little bit if you're used to a post with a setback (i.e. most road posts), and the clamp is a little different from most styles of clamp, but I actually prefer it-the two-bolt design makes it really easy to adjust your saddle fore-aft without losing your level.

This is the 3rd of of these that I've purchased (including one in 2002), and they're all in great shape, the other two posts I've used in that time have had all sorts of weird issues. Thompson Elite FTW, again.

For those of you carbon fanboys who think you need a carbon seatpost, think again. This is light, stiff, strong and one of the easiest posts to adjust on the planet. It's really okay to use alloy parts, I promise.

I use Thomson posts on my road and 'cross bikes because they're as lightweight as you can get without risking durability, and they keep your saddle in place without slippage. The Masterpiece version is even lighter, but for the money, the Elite is hard to beat...Setup was not easy the first time I used a Thomson post, but gets easier once you learn how to adjust them.

Great Seatpost

I bought the Elite because I needed a zero-setback seatpost. Great American-made seatpost - quality build and not too heavy. I had a problem at first with it squeaking, or actually clicking, against the seat tube, but I applied a little grease and the noise vanished. Highly recommended, and a good price as well.
