WTS (Perth) Thomson Elite Seatpost 31.8mm

Postby rifraf » Sun Feb 24, 2013 3:54 pm

It hasnt been in a frame and is Silver in colour (unpainted). 410mm with no offset.
Has its original bag and instructions and some transfers.

It would be a great post for someone considering a TSR Moulton as is the correct size and stronger (IMHO) than the
factory carbon one.
Some people reckon a carbon seatpost and steel frame tubes arnt a good idea;

"Using a carbon-fiber seatpost in a metal frame, or vice versa, invites problems." according to Sheldon Brown

Jericho, Manitou FS-DH, Slingshot, WTB Phoenix, Brompton are some of the other bikes that use the not so common size.

Might also suit someone with a 31.6 rusty seattube in their frame they'd like to hone to rid the rust or sort their slipping post.

Couple of tiny marks I mention for the super fussy (like me) :oops: - I think it would be an 8 out of ten with 10 being shop display.
$55 plus post or pick up.

This is still kicking around.
No longer looking for an X4 stem.
Consider a swap for Thomson 27.2 post with setback/offset
If you've a Masterpiece, I'll of course add cash on top.
Only interested in same good condition and my preference would be black although its not cast in stone.

Hi Hidepenny,
thanks for your interest and apologies for the late reply.
I feel disinclined to go that low.
Cheers :)

Not sure where your situated.
If in WA, your welcome to visit and try it.
I'll have to go searching for it but 99.9% positive its 31.8 which is ever so fractionally bigger than 31.6.
