The Thudbuster is a great stopgap solution, adding additional comfort and control to your hardtail.
  • Kit includes:1 grey (soft), 2 blue (medium), and 1 black (firm) elastomers. Mix them to fine tune for your rider weight.
  • 75mm of travel
  • Weight: 545 grams (27.2mm)

    This was among the many upgrades I had on my previous 29er that was stolen a couple of months ago. When I received my replacement 29er all of the parts were much upgraded from what ii was used too on my old bike...except the seat and post. I went on a 20 mile trail ride the first Saturday and it took me about 5-6 days to let my butt heal! So the first Monday after that ride I went to Jenson in Riverside and picked-up my thudbuster. I never realized (or just took for granted) how well this thing works until I went without it. My 29er is a hard tail and I am not interested in a full suspension bike since I like to ride a lot of technical trails with uphill challenges. The Thubbuster does not have a lot of travel but it works extremely well with what it provides. I highly recommend this unit for an upgrade to your hard tail bike!

    Ordering System did not allow me to nominate that I wanted two black elastomers and I was surprised that the postage was extra to Australia. Now I am using the Seatpost it flexes too much and really needs firmer Elastomers to manage my weight.
    Regards
    Geoff
    (P.S. I also wanted to cancel this order and reinstate it with additional purchases to make the Postage costs spread further - this was not acknowledeged in your emails with me).

        I am a recreational mountain biker. That goes once a week out for a 20 to 25 mile ride. I took the thudbuster to a marathon recently near 55 mile ride and made the difference. Great for my lower back and not to heavy that makes it a no brainier for those with entry level hard tail mountain bikes.

        Comments about Cane Creek 3G Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

        Its over double the weight of what you might take on race day... But its NOT a race day seatpost. Its for EVERY other day! This thing takes the hits for you.

        After installing, I rode all my usual trails and single tracks, and was able to stay comfortably seated for MOST of the parts I'd be standing. And even while standing, leaning backward into the seat with my thighs, acted as shock absorber. I love this thing!

        I'm 173lbs, and use the blue/grey elastomer combo (upto 165lbs).

        Might get one of these for my Dad, as the only reason he's looking at full suspension is his back.

              As a city commuter this thing helps me going thru the rattle smoother... er I should add that as a byside effect, now my commuting is a bit (much) faster as I don't decelerate as much ....

              good deal. no additional duties. thanks jenson.

              I put this product on my 20yr old Cross Bike to absorb the bumps along the way. I like that this product adds a shock-like feel to a rigid frame without the energy loss. This product is pretty expensive and depending on your weight you may need to purchase additional elastomers from the manufacturer. (I could not find them on JensonUSA site)

                We bought one for my wife who has lower back issues. It rides very much like a plush full suspension frame, although it does little or nothing to aid in traction or tracking.
                A simple, manual lockout would be nice for long smooth uphills.
                It is very well built, and well designed, light for what it is, but a little bit ugly.

                All in all well worth the price if you want a hard tail but need some cushioning.
