Thompson Elite Seatpost

I bought one for one for a commuter that I was putting together, and I feel like I wasted my money. I prefer a kalloy seatpost over this one. I'm not a racer, and don't buy the "hype". Got sucked into this.

Pros: Nice looking, Good "hype" from all the reviews convinced me to buy one.

Cons: Price, one of the adjuster bolts needs to be angled a bit more, small allen key strip easily. No weight savings over a Kalloy seatpost. Don't need bending fuse for commuter. Kalloy post has bigger bolts and better angle for adjusting too!

Would Buy Again: No
Would Recommend: No

Not too hot. Not too cold. Just right

Are there cheaper seatposts out there? Absolutely.
Are there lighter seatposts out there?
Yeah.
Are there flashier seatposts out there?
Crabonmuch?
Are there stronger seatposts out there? Wouldn't be suprised.

But is there any seatpost out there that balances the cost/weight/strength/swank equation as well as the Thomson Elite? Not in my opinion. I have this seatpost on four of my bikes, mtn and road. Easy to set up and nary a peep once you get things dialed in.

Pros: -Appearance: Subtle from distance, gorgeous details up close
-Ridiculously good build quality
-Never busted one since I bought my first in 2001
-Easy to adjust and fine tune
-Unique and re-usable packaging (a smooth burlap-like cinch-sack easily reusable to store tools and such)

Cons: Could be less expensive, but the quality is worth it

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes
