Recommendation: Money well spent. Switch it over between two bikes and happy since my first ride on this post. Can't tell if there's a lot of vibration dampening. Ride feels smooth. And it's totally new level of comfort with this seatpost, especially when climbing and you need more weight on rear for traction
Pros: Super light and strong. One of the lightest aluminum posts I've ever seen. The machining is gorgeous and oozes style.
Cons: Quite expensive for an aluminum seat post. The bolts are specially designed for Thomson, so you can't just replace them with anything.
Recommendation: What can I say? This thing has withstood the test of time, despite being mangled, crashed and pounded on daily. This post is surprisingly forgiving. It's slick looking, and if you can drop the cash on it you definitely should.
Recommendation: I got this post to give me a little more space and it worked like a charm. Previously, I was a bit cramped, not much, but after I put the Thomson post on I saw a world of difference. I'm happy with it.
