The best. Period.
What is there to be said about a Thomson post that has not been already said? Quality is superb -- everything from the cotton bag the post is packed in to the knurled clamp screws, this post will last a lifetime.

When I sell one of my bikes, I keep the post. They just keep on going.

The setback post has a unique aesthetic that can take some getting used to. I think it looks awesome.

I have a setback on my cross bike and a straight post on the commuter. Each has given me zero trouble.

I read once that the true mark of a good seatpost is forgetting that it's there. Nothing can be more true of a Thomson.

The clamp style makes saddle movement all but impossible when properly installed. Replacement parts are easy to find and assembly is intuitive.

Yes, a Thomson post is an investment. But it's one that you'll keep for the life of your current bike and many bikes to come.

PROS: Durable, Light, Attractive

Until you have a seatpost that slips or doesn't clamp the saddle well you don't know how good a thomson is.

Never had any issues with mine.

CONS: Expensive

Couldn't Be Happier
The seatpost i bought with my bike was rubbish to put it nicely, the saddle was constantly coming loose. I bought this because i read thompson were the best and I'd have to agree. Once i set it up, it hasn't moved in the slightest. Looks awesome too, you can tell imediately it's a quality product, ill be fitting one of these to all furute bikes, really happy

PROS: Looks good, Set once and leave it, High Quality

CONS: none

Worth the money
Junk OEM seat post failed in 2 months. Bought this because of Thomson reputation and I am not disappointed. Quality piece. Amazing how something as simple as a setback post opens the bike up. Definitely worth the money.

BEST USES: Serious Racing or Training, Casual Riding

best seat post in the world.
This seat post is on my sscx. The setback is perfect. The finish on it is somehow both impeccably beautiful and super bombproof--no scratches! I love the combination of strength and lightness. The two bolt system allows lots of range for adjustments.

This is the best seat post in the world.

Best seatpost I have owned
I really like this post. Unlike my other seatposts this one really clamps on the rails. No seat movement what-so-ever. This thing is awesome. The post also feels like it has a little give compared to other types of layed back posts helping smooth out the trail. As light as most carbon posts for less money. Made in the USA. I have switched all of my bikes over to Thomson.

PROS: Strong, Comfortable, Light, USA Made, Adjustability

CONS: none
