Another vote for Thomson. Top quality gear that wears very well. Only other gear I'd consider would be Hope.

Mate of mine got a Nuke Proof seat post because he'd heard they were as good as Thomson. It wasn't. Looked tatty after only a few rides :evil:

This.

My EX9 is kitted out with Thompson, and my Carbon Epic was before.

Fit and forget.......
