Install and Forget
And that's pretty much all one needs to do to this post! Well, that's not completely true. You can install and forget all Thomson parts. Sure, you need to take care of your stuff, but fretting over whether your Thomson bits can handle the abuse is a complete waste of gray matter.
On the rare occasion that I buy a bike in a box, the first things that get dumped are the stem and post.
Made is the US of A, by guys that know what the F they're doing. These very same guys answer the phone should an issue ever arise, and will stand behind their product, no questions asked.
If the answer to your question is Thomson, should you have asked the question?
