The Masterpiece represents the ultralight but still reliable seatpost option. Based on the durable Thomson Elite, the Masterpiece undergoes a second machining process to remove 40g or additional material. The interior of Thomson posts relies on an elliptical bore, an elaborate way of saying the post is round on the outside, but oval on the inside. This design puts strength where you need it most and removes material where it isn't necessary. The Masterpiece machining process allows for even more material to be removed. Still extremely durable, the Masterpiece offers an extremely lightweight, aluminum seatpost option.

Available in silver or black, in both zero and 16mm offset, the 27.2 x 240mm Masterpiece post weighs 158g.

The Masterpiece is an appropriately named thing of beauty that rivals any of my 27.2mm carbon seat posts ESPECIALLY given its size (31.6mm).

Works as needed and looks fantastic.

Can't go wrong
by Jay (TriSports.com Staff)

You just can't go wrong with a Thomson stem. These are just incredibly well made with a design that is a snap to adjust. The bolts in the front and back are easy to get to any allow unlimited flexibility in adjusting angle. The clamp holds the rails well with no slipping and no creaking.

It might be possible to save a few grams by using a crazy light carbon post, but at under 160 grams, the Thomson is pretty hard to beat.

#1 Best bike part ever made

This is one of the few products with which you can truly have it all. The clamp holds your saddle rails incomparably securely without any need for torquing the bolts heavily. And moreover, the Masterpiece is as light and as strong as anything else out there-- all the while costing a fraction of what you can spend for a carbon post. For whatever bike you're building for whatever purpose, this is the best seatpost you can buy. I have 5 bikes that use a seatpost, and therefore I have 5 Thomsons.

Simply the best post made
by Anonymous

I run Thomsons on all my bikes-road, MTB, and CX-because they're light, durable, and reliable. I bought the Masterpiece version to get a little more setback on one bike, and now the fit feels perfect.

One caveat the setback on my post is 10 degrees, other brands make posts with a lot more setback (e.g., 20) , so if you need lots of setback, the Thomson may not be your best option. Otherwise, these are great posts. Relatively easy to set up, and once you set up your saddle, it stays where it belongs. That sort of reliability is priceless.

by bbcross

I needed some setback and this posted met my needs. I was worried the ride would be too harsh but its actually just fine. Since it was heavier than advertised, around 200 grams, Im not sure its worth getting the Masterpiece version.

This is the 'Go To' post

I've tried numerous brands and styles of seatposts. The Thomson Masterpiece is clearly the best clamps work with all common seat rails, aluminum and carbon, tilt adjustment is simple and accurate and holds position, bomb-proof sturdiness of construction....and it is as light or lighter than the most expensive carbon posts!

My 31.6mm setback post ended up being 160 grams when I had trimmed a couple unnecessary inches off the end.

The only downsides are the rather odd looking angle for the setback version (which is what I use. You get used to its look) and the colors are only aluminum or black.

Pros very light, super high quality, and the machined in ridges keep the post from slipping

Cons more shock transmission than a carbon post and in cyclocross my seat rails slip a bit in the post.

Very nice post , but both the Masterpiece and the Elite were too small a diameter for my 27.2 Moots Ti bike.

The post would be a 5 star , but it is too small diameter in a 27.2 size.I had heard of Thomson posts creaking in the past, now I wonder if they are slightly undersized?

Given Thomson's reputation , I assumed it was my frame, but an Easton and a Bontrager post fit perfectly with no creaking.

This is a very nice post and it is easy to adjust. It replaces a carbon fiber seat post from my 2009 colnago (that had been cut to approx same length) and it is surprisingly lighter. Also the Colnago-labeled post was very awkward to adjust, but this is very easy.
