I have a Thompson Masterpiece 0 offset seat post on my Focus Izalco. The problem that I am having is that it doesn't allow enough angle adjustment For me to level my saddle. My options seem to be to find a longer rear bolt or try a different post. Any recommendations on a post that will allow more adjustment?

That doesn't sound right. What kind of saddle are you using? Are you sure the top clamp isn't backwards, and the front and rear bolts are in the right place?

Bricky21.

I am positive on the top cap and bolts. The saddle is SLR kit Carbino.

Picture?

Bricky is hinting that it may be backwards.

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

Hmm, I'v not used a kit carbino, but I'v used other Selle Italia saddles with Thomson posts and always had lots of room for adjustment.

How old is the post? Is the clamp marked 12 degrees or 0 degrees?

You are totally right. I double checked it and what threw me was that the front of my top cap doesn't have the Thompson logo on it. Once I compared the shape of the top cap to the website I could see that it was backwards. Boy do I feel stupid. Thank you for the help.
