    Strength and Weight (Lack of) Seatpost . . . .

    I went to the Thomson Factory for a tour today and got a Thomson Masterpicece Seatpost for my new Racer X. I opted for the Masterpiece Seatpost based on it's strength over the Extralite Seatpost. Here are some tour pictures and my Masterpiece on a scale (30.9 x 350).

    Bummer

    Too bad they don't have longer small diameter posts yet I would love a 26.8 x350 and a 27.2 by 350. Even 330s are too short for their bikes. I think I'll try one in the Fuel though.

    You'd be surprised how laid back they are. Very cool guys and trusting of the cycling community. They got me the seatpost I needed for an awesome deal and then gave me a headset top cap, a baseball cap and long sleeve t-shirt.

    Extralite seatpost...

    I didn't know there was an issue with the strength of the Extralite posts. I've got nothing but good things to say about mine. Just my $.02. I have also heard nothing but good things about the Thomsons.
