Any such thing as high-end 31.6 seatpost??phatboy

Hello. Just got an older Klein bike with the idea that i would slowly upgrade parts starting with the seat/seatpost. I bought a selle flight with a (now for sale) thomson 27.5 post just to find out that my bike uses a 31.6 post. Are ther any companies making a high end post that will fit my bike? I would like a carbon post but a thomson or equiv will do. Feel free to email me at
OK. Now I feel a little dumb, but..........phatboy

I just spent ten seconds on ebay, and found a bunch of thomson and kore posts that will fit, but does anyone know of any carbon posts?? also if anyone has a 31.6 they want to trade for a 27.5 let me know.
All I had to do was look. wana trade?phatboy

All it took was a little research to find out that just about everyone who makes carbon seatposts makes one in my size. Still, if you have one you want to trade let me know.

Don't bother with all that... spend another 10 seconds and do a search for a seatpost shim. Shim that 31.6 down to fit your Thompson and be done with it. Easy to do, and it works just fine.
