I don't think Berk makes thomson cradles.
Smud carbon used to make em, but not anymore.

Wish I could get a set because I finally got my hands on a masterpiece for under a hundred euros and don't wanna take the dremel to it. But I will if I have to :twisted:

Maybe I was thinking Smud but I can't remember where I got my two sets.

Did he had a symbol with three little white squares?

There's no point of making the original clamp in full carbon version any more.
Smud's cradle is what you need to make your Thompson a light seatpost.

Which yokes would you recommend in combination with the Smud lower carbon cradle for a Thomson Masterpiece post? I've got a set of titanium bolts...believe they are M5? (I can see that the no-longer-available carbon upper clamp is overkill.). The only aftermarket M5 yokes I'm seeing are POP from Fairwheel, and they are out of stock. Any suggestions?

These ones on the picture are made by Mack http://www.mackhubs.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; but as far as I'm concern he doesn't make them anymore.
I was thinking about POP yokes at one point , they are slightly lighter than Mac ones.
Try contact POP guys directly info@ceetec.ch
Their yokes come in M5 12g and M6 13g. Also you've got another yokes from KCNC M6 12g and I suppose you could find few others.
But those rounded ones will be better for Thompson clamp.

All mentioned above in stock http://r2-bike.com/navi.php?suchausdruc ... 0ff69f47e8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm looking for replacement washers for my Thomson SB post.
What i got this far:
Thomson Masterpiece post
Titan M5 bolts black that fit the std washers
And on order a Smud carbon Cradle and POP yokes in black.

Now i only need the washers in black and lighter. I can find them in titanium color. Original ones are steel and weight in at 1.3 gr/set.
Where can i find black, alloy/ti washers for thomson posts?
