Any thoughts on putting a Thomson setback/offset seat post in a carbon frame. I worry about the pressure on the seat tube and damaging the frame around the seat post clamp.

I don't think offset matters much as long as you have a long enough seatpost. I think the general rule is that it needs to extend just below the top tube.

It shouldn't be a problem.  My Specialized has a set back and it has been fine for years. and I weigh 220 not geared up. Add a camelbac, shoes ect and I bet its near 240. So my 2 cents is, no problem.

If you are getting advice from me, I would strongly suggest you get a second opinion.
