I am a huge fan of thomson masterpiece seat posts because of their light weight and outstanding clamp that holds its position and is easy to use. Does anyone have any recommendations of a seatpost where I can drop some weight and not give up clamping ability/ease? thanks

I got my 31.6 Masterpiece down to about 158 gms but cutting off extra length and using Ti bolts. Tough to get much lighter than that.

I just wish they did a 27.0mm version as I have two frames with that post. I have to use the Elite instead.

3T Dorico LTD, mine comes in at 179 and has an easy and firm carbon clamp.

The two posts I can think of are the Bold Precision and the Extralite UL. Though I'm not sure if the Bold Ti posts are still available. Sweet bling of you could get one. I don't have any experiance with either. The extralite designs are always cleverly light.

I have a Ti tuned MP. I can't be happier! I put some serious miles (6yrs!) on mine with a single hiccup.
