Form through function

The Masterpiece is an appropriately named thing of beauty that rivals any of my 27.2mm carbon seat posts ESPECIALLY given its size (31.6mm).

Works as needed and looks fantastic.

#1 Best bike part ever made

This is one of the few products with which you can truly have it all. The clamp holds your saddle rails incomparably securely without any need for torquing the bolts heavily. And moreover, the Masterpiece is as light and as strong as anything else out there-- all the while costing a fraction of what you can spend for a carbon post. For whatever bike you're building for whatever purpose, this is the best seatpost you can buy. I have 5 bikes that use a seatpost, and therefore I have 5 Thomsons.

Simply the best post made

I run Thomsons on all my bikes-road, MTB, and CX-because they're light, durable, and reliable. I bought the Masterpiece version to get a little more setback on one bike, and now the fit feels perfect.

One caveat the setback on my post is 10 degrees, other brands make posts with a lot more setback (e.g., 20) , so if you need lots of setback, the Thomson may not be your best option. Otherwise, these are great posts. Relatively easy to set up, and once you set up your saddle, it stays where it belongs. That sort of reliability is priceless.

Superb Design, Oval Carbon Rail Clamp Available Too

First, let's correct the setback description Biketiresdirect says it is 7 degrees for the 31.6mm size and 10 degrees for the 27.2mm size. Thomson says both 27.2mm and 31.6mm have 16mm of setback. Check for yourself httpbikethomson.com masterpiece-seatpost-series

Second, superb design Two-bolt design means you can dial in the exact saddle angle you want and the long rail clamps mean saddle rails will have excellent support, whether mounted forward or rearward on the post.

Third, great adaptability I use my 27.2mm Masterpiece with a Prologo saddle that has oval carbon rails. Thomson makes an oval carbon rail kit that fits these rails perfectly.

To top it all off, Thomson posts are lighter and better designed than most carbon posts. Simply the best.

This is the 'Go To' post

I've tried numerous brands and styles of seatposts. The Thomson Masterpiece is clearly the best clamps work with all common seat rails, aluminum and carbon, tilt adjustment is simple and accurate and holds position, bomb-proof sturdiness of construction....and it is as light or lighter than the most expensive carbon posts!

My 31.6mm setback post ended up being 160 grams when I had trimmed a couple unnecessary inches off the end.

The only downsides are the rather odd looking angle for the setback version (which is what I use. You get used to its look) and the colors are only aluminum or black.

Very nice post , but both the Masterpiece and the Elite were too small a diameter for my 27.2 Moots Ti bike.

The post would be a 5 star , but it is too small diameter in a 27.2 size.I had heard of Thomson posts creaking in the past, now I wonder if they are slightly undersized?

Given Thomson's reputation , I assumed it was my frame, but an Easton and a Bontrager post fit perfectly with no creaking.

Very nice

This is a very nice post and it is easy to adjust. It replaces a carbon fiber seat post from my 2009 colnago (that had been cut to approx same length) and it is surprisingly lighter. Also the Colnago-labeled post was very awkward to adjust, but this is very easy.

Strong and light

test is out strong and very light ,lighter than my eastern carbon post which had the head mount stripped out because of making of carbon .

only complaint is the fine horizontal grooves or line that runaround the post ,as with all the thomson post still doesn't grip that well when compare to carbon post or sandblasted post like kore.

Bulletproof micro-adjust post!

This post went on my new Parlee Z4 frame.

I have one on another bike too and have found this post to be the absolute best for me. Light, micro adjustable, and bulletproof.

Some things just don't need to be carbon and my seatpost is one of those things.

Sets the standard for all other seat posts.

I'm buying my second Thomson Masterpiece to replace the carbon seat post on my second bike. I've used my first Thomson for a year and it has lived up to it's superb reputation in every way. Fits perfectly, micro adjustable, never slips or lets the seat angle change. Beautifully made as well. I only look for the best components and have finally found the best seat post.

Can't go wrong

You just can't go wrong with a Thomson stem. These are just incredibly well made with a design that is a snap to adjust. The bolts in the front and back are easy to get to any allow unlimited flexibility in adjusting angle. The clamp holds the rails well with no slipping and no creaking.

It might be possible to save a few grams by using a crazy light carbon post, but at under 160 grams, the Thomson is pretty hard to beat.
