    Can a Thomson laid back seatpost damage your frame if it slips?

    Has anyone experienced their Thomson laid back seatpost cause damage to their frame because it slips back into the seat tube while riding, causing damage to the seat tube because of its angled design? Either by accident because your seat post clamp just gives way, or by your buddy playing the quick release trick on you while riding?

    Should that be a reason to avoid it, and if so, do you know of any better alternatives?

    If you pounded on the saddle with a sledge hammer, maybe. Just riding, no way. The only way a Thomson post is going to slip by accident is if there's something seriously wrong with your frame in the first place. If your "buddy" plays that trick on you, it's time to find new friends.

    Thomson is the only company that makes seatposts, there is nothing better, nor anything else even worth considering.
