Thomson Elite Seatpost 30.9
 


December 12, 2017
 
Model/Year: 2015

Pros: It holds my seat up It's really shiny and sparkly

Recommendation: Never understood why people have a preference for one seat post over another with the exception of droppers. It came stock on my blackborrow and seems to do what it was supposed to do.

Pros: Strong. 2 bolt clamp. Many sizes

Cons: Heavy compared to posts of similar price.

Recommendation: I've had various sizes of the Thomson Elite post and never had a single issue out of them. The clamp/bolts are very strong, and the machining is dead sexy.

Pros: Strong
Saddle mount is easily adjustable

Cons: None

Recommendation: Best seatpost I've ever used. Not the lightest, but i've never bent one of these or broken the saddle mount, which i've done on other posts. I've purchased one of these for all of my bikes have never regretted it. Other reviews state the bolts are hard to tighten for the saddle (they are). I use a ball driver (allen wrench with a rounded head), and this becomes a non-issue.

Pros: -Superior quality compared to all other seat posts
-Light weight
-Bomb proof

Cons: -Hardware is tricky to adjust when installing saddle

Recommendation: Great alloy seat post. Highest quality alloy post you may fine...also one of the most expensive but it's worth it.

Pros: Strong and light

Cons: The bolts are a pain to work on with a ratchet. Expensive.

Recommendation: A strong seatpost if aluminum is your thing. Not bad looking and wont scratch. Just wish the bolts were easier to get to and work on.

Pros: My favorite post so far. Light and extremely strong. Quality is off the charts. The tube taper makes for a flexible yet strong post.

Cons: The price is rather high for an alloy post.

Recommendation: Love this post. Strong and light just not cheap. Like Bontrager said strong, light and cheap now pick 2.
