    Last time I checked the ordering form Thomson Elite came in all sorts of weird sizes. If you need carbon specifically you might try FSA.

    Thompson is the only company in existence that makes seat posts. Trust no other. Sort of like Chris King is the only headset maker on the planet.

    26.8 is NOT a common size and you won't find other Carbon post really. The Sette Edge post are nice and pretty decent quality. If you can live without setback, then get it.

    AS far as I know just the Kilos and SE?

    Soma, Pake EAI, Raliegh, Sulry, Schwinn, Spec, Trek, Cinelli, Jamis and others use 27.2 in their Track frames.

    Why not just go 27.0 or even better 27.2. Some of the most common smaller size posts.

    27.2 being the most common, followed by 31.6.

    26.8 and not 28.6?

    Just checking. I made that mistake once.

    If it's 28.6, USE's alien is great.

    Carbon Race Face in 26.8... ZZzzZZzz...

    this is just as light as carbon. but not carbon. if you're looking for the lightness, get this. if you're looking for the vibration dampening qualities, this is aluminum, so keep looking

    the crabon easton EA70 comes in 26.8

    Adriano,

    Ha ha. Hey, I think the world of Chris King headsets. I'll agree that Thompson takes seat posts to a level not seen before. Absolutely no other production item even comes close.

    CF post in not going to give you any more comfort to be totally honest! This comes form a guy who's road bike is all carbon.
    You want comfort? 25-28c tires, I nice saddle and a Titanium post!! It will flex a little and give and has vibration dampening qualities. I used on on the MTB hard tail for years and a HUGE difference.

    A smaller diameter post like 26.8 will flex a a lot.

    I'm not sure if I should first suggest a front brake or to lay those bricks flat and put the pedal on them to keep from scratching up his BB shell.
