    Stole a Thompson Elite X4 off ebay !!! (I think)

    After posting a thread asking everyone which stem would be the best for my new AM rig I found a new one on ebay with a low bid and I put my chips down for $52 dollars and forgot about the thing. I think thats a pretty good deal.
    Turns out I won so thanks to everyone for the suggestion.
    Thompson Elite X4 in the 70mm flavor.

    Bike and stem should be here by this weekend so expect some pic's!

    Yeah, after Chainlove was blowing out the Gravity Light stuff, I am not surprised.

    Are you sure it wasn't the Gravity Gap stuff? I have seen Gravity Gap on Chainlove but not Gravity Light. The Gap is the cheaper cast 6061 part while the Light is machined 2014.

    Errrr....you might be right.
    I have seen FSA Gravity DH Stem on there.

    They haven't sold the Gravity Light stem...the looks of the Gravity DH one were close enough to make me think it was one...

    the OG seat post is "Thomson" and if your seat post is a Thompson, you probably have a knock off. (Check the spelling)
    I picked up a Thomson Elite Masterpiece last week for pretty penny. But did some research and visited their website: http://www.lhthomson.com/masterpiece_sizes.asp
    The Thomson Elite Masterpiece seat post weighs in at 193 grams, lighter than most carbon post .
