Cane Creek ST Thudbuster Seatpost

"ST" stands for "short-travel" - 1.3" of travel is ideal for cross-country racers, road, or comfort riding where you just need to take the edge off bumps without the complexity of a true suspension solution. A patented 4-pivot force aligned parallel linkage keeps the pedal to saddle distance nearly constant through its travel.

An aluminum mast and links, rebuildable stainless pivots, and bronze-impregnated PTFE coated steel bushings keep the weight down to 460 grams - barely more than a traditional rigid post.


Weight: 454-474 grams, depending on size
Feature:

1.3" of travel

After much deliberation, I bought this post. Having never owned a suspension seat post before, I was dubious about how much it might help. And, the price tag was more than a bit intimidating. So far, I am ecstatic. I do a lot of riding on gravel and uneven pavement, and I'm used to hopping out of the saddle for minor bumps. Small holes, concrete seams, manhole covers, pavement to sidewalk transitions - this post absorbs them all.With this post, I can stay in the saddle almost entirely. It completely easts up the little bumps that you take for granted. Being on the heavy side, I did have to swap out the elastomer, but the process was easy. It was nice that they ship the unit with multiple inserts, allowing you to match your riding weight - or to pre-load the seat for harder riding.

      Use 3 of the for my hard tails. Just bought the wife one. I have a herniated L5/S1 and this enables me to ride.
      I literally couldn't ride a hard tail without the thud busters!
      A little heavy, but a good trade off.
      Make sure you get the right size!

          Very noticeable bump absorption without hurting your spin. I have lumbar stenosis so I decided to try this post. I am pleased with it, not too much added weight and doesn't sag much.

          Comments about Cane Creek ST Thudbuster Seatpost:

          I purchased this for my new hard-tail fat bike to just take-up some of the small bumps on the trails and in the snow. I'm 6'3" tall and heavy for a cyclist, but I installed the firmest elastomer they make (a #9) and had great results. It works perfectly and I've had no problems. I'm impressed with the ease of changing elastomers and have always liked Cane Creek products. I highly recommend this if you want a post that will take up the small bumps and make your rides much more enjoyable.

              I have been using "long travel" (2"+) suspension seat posts for twenty years or so. I bought the Thudbuster hoping it would be a little more durable than the USE posts I have been using. I also hoped that an inch and a third would be enough travel for my bad back (three surgeries). It's not, except on smoothish pavement. I bought the CANE CREEK long travel Thudbuster years ago, and it had too much travel.

                Got this two years ago for my road bike. Maybe I was just used to the softer ride you get from the larger tires of MTBs, but my road bike just felt harsh on the bottom, even with a better seat. The Cane Creek really evened out the ride and made it comfortable again.

                    I"m a 47 year old male. Several hours of riding dirt/gravel roads on my 'cross bike always left me with back soreness for several days and screwed up my road training, but I love to ride dirt roads. I've tried lots of fixes and nothing worked. I thought it was a long shot, but bought a Thudbuster ST as a last resort. I did two days of hard gravel riding in a row with zero back pain. The dang thing was like a magic wand for me - can't explain it any other way.

                    Like another reviewer I had a prostate treatment so my saddle, seat post and how the ride affects my nether region is key. As a dirt and gravel rider I have used suspension seat posts in the past and have a Cobblegobble on my road bike but when I bought a new carbon D&G bike I decided to add the Thudbuster and see how it worked. All I can say is that it is the best $150 I ever spent for a bike accessary. No doubt that this makes my riding much more enjoyable and that translates to better and faster riding. It does add weight but the tradeoff is worth it. Only other thing I didn't like was how the saddle mounts (how the rails get tightened)but I got over it.
