Strengths:    Stays in place, stays alive.

Weaknesses:    Screw heads aren't something to write home about, but then again you ideally should be using a torque wrench to prevent mishaps.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a zero-offset version used. I hate being on those "bandwagons" of popular items, but I seek no further when it comes to seatposts unless I wanted an aero profile. The Thomson Elite just...does its job:

Doesn't slip, setting is easy and on-point. Weight and comfort - well in my opinion - have zero influence on seatpost quality in general. My Elite is far from broken, but the clamp screw heads are rather suspect to getting stripped at the first sign of carelessness when torque-ing.

Strengths:    strong, good adjustment

Weaknesses:    not enough setback for many riders - good for me only because my Time frame has slacker STA than most others. I can't use same post on my other bike which has 74 STA so I use FSA SL220 post instead (also good one). This is why 4 stars instead of 5. Another 10-15mm more setback i.e. same as all other ~25mm setback posts would be ideal.

Bottom Line:   
this review is for set-back kinked Thomson Elite, 27.2mm. Great seatpost, strong, two-bolt design allows precise seat level adjustment

Strengths:    Light and strong. Adjusts easilly. Looks great.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have a Thompson Elite on both of my bikes. I use the zero offset model. The Elite is a work of art. It is simple and very functional. The adjustment for seat tilt is easy to use and will allow you to fine tune the angle exactly where you want it. The Elite is very light. In fact the Elite was lighter than a few carbon posts I was looking at. Buy this post and you will never have to get another one.

Roubaix Elite seems heavy....why?

Looking at a closeout on a '13 Roubaix Elite with 105. It is over 19 pounds. Any reason for that? A comparable Caad10 with 105 is 18 pounds in alum. I don't think the wheels are the only culprit - I'm thinking maybe the frame? I like the bike but it's a tad pricey for the weight. Unless al ... Read More »
