Question: can I get a setback seatpost with a greater degree of setback?

I’m giving a Thomson Elite Setback Seatpost a shot on my bike. It’s working out very well, but I’d like to be sitting even farther back. My initial thought: “well, I just need a steeper degree of setback, while this post is probably about 10 degrees, why not try a 20 degree setback?”

Problem: as far as I can tell, Thomson setback seatposts are only available in one size

Question: can I get a setback seatpost with a greater degree of setback?

Answer: Of course you can! The ten degrees of setback you see on the Thomson amounts to 16mm of actual setback off of the center line of the post. Posts with up to 40mm of setback are available, but 20-30mm are most common.
