Top quality. Super strong, looks great and the micro adjust is a pleasure for getting that seat dialed in just right.
A recent birthday and some cash burning a hole in my pocket reminded me that I needed to replace the faux carbon alloy seat post that was on my road bike.
A look at reviews and comments and I finally decided on the Thomson (layback).
It is cheaper than carbon, beautifully made and looks the business.
Simply the best mountain bike seatpost. Very light and built to withstand the toughest tests.
Bought the setback 27.2 x 330 in black for my steel hardtail. It fits nicely, and allows the saddle angle to be set and adjusted very accurately. Love the look and it seems pretty bomb-proof.
I have one for each bike to help find the right position as the stock posts were not quite right. Light and adjustable plus they have every configuration you could need.
Classic Thomson seat post great quality & value. I needed the setback version from current straight seat post as saddle in wrong place on my rear end! Result, no more saddlesores
All you need is a seatpost really. Come in layback or without in sizes to fit all frames. Dont weigh more than a cream scone, and last a helluva lot longer. Treats!
Superb seat post, strong and light, if you want the best look no further.
Not got a bad word to say about the seatpost. performs every bit as good as it looks. I'd had trouble locating a decent seatpost that will accommodate 7x9 Carbon saddle rails and this thing grips them tight. 10/10
It is easy to see why so many users speak well of Thomson. The workmanship is very high and none of the details have been forgotten. I like the finish on the seatpost which holds it in place better. Very happy with my purchase, but it is of course only a seatpost.
Beautiful and functional as ever. Benchmark seatpost
Excellent product. Comparable to the carbon weight and all the security provided by aluminum.
Bomb proof post. Love it
Quite simply a quality product.
Great seatpost for the money. Lightweight and strong. Not the prettiest option out there.
Good quality piece of kit I've heard people say they mark easy but havent found that yet.
Great service, good price and fast delivery from Merlin.
Light weight and strong. Shipped fast.
Top quality Seatpost! Very beautiful!
One of the best seat posts around
Easily the best seatpost system I've encountered. So simple to set up and adjust - no fiddling and cursing whilst trying to micro manage the fit to your requirements. This feature alone makes the post brilliant but the bonus build quality and light weight makes the post well worth the extra coin over the average seat post.
Fantastic seatpost, lives up to all the hype and positive reviews. Great design with two bolts that adjust the angle of the seat - after two rides it has yet to move, unlike my old post.
Excellent price from Merlin and an excellent product from Thompson. Great saddle clamping and the stem stays put in the frame with a lot less clamping force than other stems I have used. Probably due to the slight ridges/machining marks on the surface. Don't bother with anything else for your MTB; if you need a stem get one of these.
Very well made as you`d expect, good adjuster
Excellent delivery time again thanks merlin
Excellent price beautiful to look at
Beautifuly manufactured and easy to set-up. The finishing touch to any bike.
Light and strong more reliable than carbon
Ultra strong, stiff and light seatpost from Thomson. Beautifully machined with exceptionally durable hard black finish. Stylish bike hardware that works - and looks fab, especially with a Thomson stem.....
The best available. Simple, strong, long-lasting and easily adjustable.
The best seatpost there is!
I shouldn't be surprised at the quality of this product, but these posts live up to their reputation of build, function and looks.
They say Thomson seatposts are the best in the world and indestructable... I can see why! Build quality is absolutely superb. Nothing comes close and they are completely worth the money.
Faultless customer service from Merlin too again after I bought the wrong size and had to refund/exchange.
Brought the 27.2mm inline post as a replacement for my Easton EA50 (after I bent it doing nothing in particular) based on the rave reviews about how strong it is. After a few rides it's still straight so going well so far! The finish is considerably nicer than the Easton post, which looked like someone had done the primer layer and forgot the main coat. Ride comfort might be better but tbh I'm not sat down that much when on my MTB...
This is my second Elite seatpost; bought a new frame so had to change sizes!
Superb build quality, easy to fit, kind to lightweight saddles. Usually very expensive but Merlins magic prices make it more affordable!
why buy any other seatpost ? these are the best end of story !
Quality seat post at a good price from Merlin Cycles! Beautifully made!
This post deserves its reputation as being the best.! Strong, light and very well built. Excellent service from merlin too..
This is the 30.9 mm I bought for my new frame and I got it since I have a 27mm for my hardtail and it was brilliant-
With me just over a 100kg and a full packed Hoss camelback (work tools; cycle tools) it was never a problem and it still looks and performs like new. So I think opting for the 30.9 mm for my new frame will be a a choice I will be more than happy with.
You might find something cheaper on the market but know with the sales going on you should make this one to be on your short list and you will be glad with this purchase.
What can I say about the Thomson layback seat post except 'epic' it does exactly what it should do with no fuss and no problems, grips the rails very well and looks and feels amazing, can be a little awkward to get set up how you want it but once you know what your doing there great!!! I've got 5 bikes at the moment and four of them are running with these posts...must tell you something (the fifth bike is a road bike (commuter) so its difficult to justify another one!!!)!
As for Merlin Cycles...what a web site...great products at fantastic prices and then you get to the check out and they knock a little bit more money off, what can I say but thank you!!!
Top quality product ordered at the the best online price and arrived next day.
Thanks to all at Merlin Cycles.
Speedy delivery and great price as ever from Merlin, very happy with the seat post too, looks the business and very simple to fit and align.
