Well the last two "rat"-parts on my bike beside the frame are an old Zoom seatpost and an old Selle Royal Viper saddle.
First off, I'm a sucker for Thomson and love my Thomson stem, so naturally i have been eying the Elite and Masterpiece seatpost too.
Is the Masterpiece worth the premium over the Elite?
And how long should i buy my post, the one I have now is 300mm and more than long enough. Therefore I was considering the 240mm Elite or MP, but I started thinking that if I ever got an smaller frame a 330mm might be nice (got a size 56 frame and would like a 54 later on).
This is how much of the 300mm seatpost that is in use:
Second off, the saddle. I really like my Viper, its just very raped after many years of use. What would you recommend as a better substituted for a Viper? The Charge Spoon looks like a nice alternative.
