Good except, lose the rail adaptor, you could make your own rail-less setup (gerbalfranklin) or buy a Scott wallis Cf base that goes directly to a Thompson with out any adaptors or even needing the guts of the post.

Sounds good but why would you go from a KH frame to a nimbus? The KH is wayyyy better even if you have an older one. Also alot of people (including me) don't like rail adapters for trials but it may not bother you. CF seats are really nice, you might not need one now but once you start breaking KHs then it may be a good idea to get one. If you get a SWallis CF base then you don't need the rail adapter.

isnt the nimbus lighter than the kh 04? well i havent broken any of them yet but i probably will. na the rail adapter is no problem, its worth it after breaking normal seatposts

I'm not sure if its lighter but if it is then its not by much. If it were me I would probably upgrade to a KH from a nimbus not the other way around.

If you are breaking seat posts then I am surprised you haven't killed a KH seat.

I think it has a bad reputation for hitting people knees. I don't think that there is something wrong with the nimbus but there isn't anything wrong with the KH. I don't know how they compare in weight so thats not something I am factoring in.

I've heard they are comparable to profiles. I don't think there has been a side by side test to show which is stronger though. I think that the KHs are better than profiles but they don't have the warrenty. Yeah Justin bent his KH cranks but he has snapped profiles too.
