    Thomson alternatives with micro-adjust?

    Looking for suggestions on a good alternatives to the Thomson Elite seatpost, preferably a bit cheaper and with a matte/flat black finish (I am really OCD and having a glossy black Elite on my matte black bike would probably drive me insane). I barely know anything about seatposts, so don't know where to begin.

    Would the Thompson in silver be OK?

    Nope.

    Not unless I could get someone to paint it matte black and get rid of the logo.

    Thomson's have absolutely no setback. Their setback version is also but ugly and comes in limited sizes.
    1999 Waterford RSE-11, 1995 Waterford 1200, 1989 Specialized Rockhopper Comp
    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    Have a recent Bought Race face Post, its OK, American Classic is clever too, But they are Black anodized too ,


    I recently got a new Brompton Penta saddle clip, they are a single bolt aluminum microadjustment saddle clip
    for plain type 22,2 .. /7/8" top seatpost which is silvery and offered by like Kalloy for example in All dameters from 25.0 to 27.2 at least
    in typical 0.2mm increments .
