    Thompson seat post on Enduros?

    Anyone know if you can put a Thompson Elite seatpost on an Enduro. I don't know the seat tube diameter for Enduro, or if it requires specialized seat post only.

    Thanks!

    Yes they even come stock on the S-Works. Just make sure you get a 30.9

    Sure. Just be aware of the fact that the Specialized seatposts have about an inch of setback whereas the straight Thomson posts have none. A Thomson setback post might be a better match. Take a look at where your seatclamp is presently positioned on the rails. If it's way back, then even a Thomson setback post might not work. If it's way forward, then a Thomson straight post might be okay. I think the clamping surface on Thomson posts is also larger, so be sure to take that into account as well.

    Just replaced the standard post with a Thomson post. Setback is fine for me.

    Where to buy?

    I need a new one for my '04 Enduro. 350mm is not long enough. Where can I get one?

    Also check Ebay. I've gotten some pretty good Thomson prices when I've shopped carefully.
