Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Elastomer
A replacement elastomer allows you to tune the Thudbuster LT suspension seatpost to your rider weight, or replace a broken/worn one.
- Available in Soft and Medium
I found that Jenson had a slightly better price due to the free shipping over a certain purchase price. So I ordered two sets of medium elastomers (and a glove which I don't recommend .. see that review) and got them in short order.
The only thing that threw me was the ThudBuster site shows the elastomers are still colored, but the ones I got were black. That said, they are labeled Cane Creek on the end and have the elastomer strength on the side.
Installation was fairly easy though they show you need grease on the elastomer ends and the shaft, which I didn't initially have. Dielectric grease worked fine and the bike is up and running again.
The only negative I see is these elastomers are proprietary, they're made by Cane Creek. If they go out of business or stop making the ThudBuster or radically change the design, your ThudBuster suddenly becomes a really lousy paper weight.
I did learn that due to the sudden failure of the elastomers, it's a good idea to always have a spare set available. This isn't something you'll swap in the field, but at least you won't have to wait a week or two to get replacement to ride your bike again.
