I was thinking along the lines of KCNC, Woodman etc, using their clamping on the top of the Thomson.
Is it possible or anyone done this?
Are these clamps availiable by themselves?
My german is non-existant can you tranlate or give me an idea on where to source parts.
For a truly ghetto job you could probably use some PVC tube instead of carbonfor the cradle. Weight would be the same?

You need to provide more details with this sort of statement. Anything can fail if the test is sufficiently nonrepresentative of real-world loads. Any product which competes on weight is going to be compromising reliability to some extent. For example, a post optimized for a 56 kg rider is going to break with a 168 kg rider.
Similarly a post optimized for the road might not be best for mountain biking downhill.
I have two Thomson masterpieces on my tandem and they work flawlessly. Also the anodising does not flake off with a bit of British winter salt. The bolts are angled so that you can turn them with an allen key...These points are not true for some Italian products I could mention. Truly it is a superior device to many lightweight "tube with a hole plus two screws and a U" seat posts from Tune, KCNC, USE, WR Compositi, 3T etc....
Best close copy IMHO is the Syntace post and that's about the same weight but costs more. Case closed.
Im still using it as my every day seatpost.
