Perfect Bike Components, Part 2

It really is a sweet seatpost. No bonding, plugging, welding. It's just one piece of alloy with an internal oval bore.

The Thomson seatpost is smartly done-- perfect combination of form and function. It's not got anything gimmicky on it and has a longer clamp to grab hold of your saddle and not let go.

This thing is about 15cm longer than the OEM carbon composite seatpost that came with my bike but it is lighter. And doubtless stronger, too.

Which is nice, because I've seen the ugly things composite seatposts can do when they break.

Now I just need a Thomson seatpost collar...
