Bruce Corman's Bio

Like most of us, I have been riding bikes since I was a kid. It wasn't till I had an industrial accident in the late 1980"s that prompted me to rediscover the benefits and fun of cycling. I bought my first mountain bike in 1989 and had the first pair of Rock Shox in my town of Ashland, OR where cycling is still quite big. I moved to Idaho Falls, ID where at 50 I put in my first (an unsupported) century (on my mountain bike). After that I reacquainted my self with road biking. I love cycling. I believe that it is truly one of the greatest inventions that man has ever made.

What A great bike
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my first FS bike. Reviewed lots of on line reviews before pulling the trigger. Competitive Cyclist had a awesome deal. This bike is light and climbs like a mountain goat. Down the mountain is confident and fast. Flow tracks are my favourite as the bike curves into the track with flick-able fun. Twenty-niner seem so much heavier and not geared as well. Twenty-sixer has been the standard for the last twenty five years I have been riding. Bottom line...This is a fun bike.

Old School meets New Cool
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

You know that Thomson makes awesome stuff. I replaced my set (lay) back seat post with this one. Thing is I was always sliding to the nose of my saddle when I was climbing steep stuff anyway. The bike did not come with a quick release so the seat was high all the time.

I am a weight weenie, that is my bike, not actually me. Adding 500 grams took a lot of pondering. Is is really worth spending that much $ to add additional weight? Well...I did it.

I have not had much time on the seat post, and the new position and another lever takes a bit getting used to. The setup was easy, however, I added a (brake cable) noodle to keep the cable bend smooth, tucked in and clean.

I really like having the seat out of the way, especially being able to do that on the fly. I just require a bit more practice to make using the seatpost smooth and automatic.

Choosing the Thomson seatpost was a no brainer for me. Thomson stuff is just that good.

Its a no brainer, Chris King has set the standard in the industry. My attitude is to get the best value for my money. Believe me, I looked for the best price and found it here. I buy quality so I don't have to look to replace something that will fail, paying again and again for the same part. Buy the best, and forget it.
