Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased new. Sticky from the get-go. 5-7 mm left in the 100 mm post at full extension. I contacted Thomson and was told I should send it in as it could be a pressure issue. They sent me a reconditioned replacement. That on arrived. Same issue. Contacted Thomson and same guy told me the amount of sticky, non-exteded travel I was experiencing was within tolerances. Whoa! I could have avoided the unistall and install of the post and replacement had they taken that weak position originally. I am bummed because the experience soured my feeling toward the brand, and I have had nothing but Thomson stems and posts for 20 plus years. :-( The company has a history of making aerospace components and prides itself on accuracy and precision. 5-7 percent travel tolerance is not accurate, nor precise.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been riding the 4000s for a long time. I was psyched to see a new version coming to market. I like the 25 mm size. These are considerably narrower than their predecessor. Bummer. I want a bigger tire under me, and this new and improved version has gone skinnier--odd choice for Conti given the trend to bigger tires. The moment I put them on I could see they were not as big as the 4000s I was replacing. On my rims, they measure 2 mm skinnier, sidewall to sidewall. The 4000s measure at 25mm on my rims. These things come in at 23mm. Improvement? No.
