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.

This seatpost ran trouble-free for a while, but it has started creaking. Despite taking it apart and cleaning it, and greasing every possible surface I have not been able to get it to stop for more than one ride at a time. That is way too much maintenance for a $90 seatpost. Maybe this is an isolated problem, but it is still a pain.

    great seat post. it has so many adjustments finding the perfect saddle angle is easy. i purchased the setback post because i wanted more weight over the rear of my bike and greater saddle adjustment. this product has worked perfect for me. i have no complaints.

      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.

          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.

            Very good quality seatpost,

            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.
