Best Seatpost on the Market

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Great Mounting System
  • Lightweight
  • Strong Construction

Cons

    Best Uses

    • BMX

    Comments about Thomson Masterpiece Seatpost:

    The Thomson Masterpiece post is a beautiful piece of machining that works flawlessly, is very easy to adjust and very lightweight. While probably overkill for most people's needs (Who REALLY needs a seatpost this nice), it appeals to the connoisseur who only wants the best.

    It's lighter than many carbon seatposts out there and the finish lasts a very long time through many abrasions through a seat tube.

    As a bonus, it's designed and machined by real, live Americans in the aerospace industry in Macon, Georgia. It's an investment... some people will think it's worth it, others won't.

        Comments about Thomson Masterpiece Seatpost:

        Love these seatposts, have them in various sizes on three different bikes (including one road bike). Very strong and light, and I love the ridges on the post that keep it from sliding in the seat tube.

        It is expensive, though. Getting your saddle attached is pretty finicky, but I've gotten good at it with a little practice. Adjusting the saddle angle can be somewhat time consuming but it's very accurate and stays put once you set it.

          Comments about Thomson Masterpiece Seatpost:

          I've owned several of these seat posts over the years and they are amazing. The only thing that I can thing of as a negative is installing a new saddle. It's not difficult, just annoying when trying to make finetuned adjustments.

              I have them on all my bikes. Road, track, Mtn. and commuter. Stiff, light, and strong. Don't have to worry about it snapping off like carbon! For mtn bikes you may have to clean dirt buildup out from under the seat from time to time.

              Comments about Thomson Masterpiece Seatpost:

              Thomson has unparalleled manufacturing and quality control.

              The Masterpiece is their most refined, light weight post. Do note, with their attention to QC and safety, Thomson gives a ride weight limit for this post.

              I've had a serious injury from another manufacturer's seat post failure and Thomson is now the only product i trust with my life. I'm 190lbs suited up to hit the bike park and feel secure using the Masterpiece for this hardcore application. It also rivals any seat post on the market in regards to weight. I'd use it on my weight wennie road bike. There might be posts out their that are slightly lighter but are you really going to count a handful of grams vs safety.

                  Use it on my Ibis since 2010, it´s perfect and a beautiful piece. A also recomend the x4 stem to make the pair. And you can use it on your repair stand without any fear (instead of the carbon´s)
