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!

PROS: Just Enough Give But Not, Great Mounting System, Very comfortable, Strong Construction

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking

This seat post has been a real revelation, it has allowed me to keep my hard tail frame whilst affording me the ability to remain seated as if I were on a full suspension bike. It is quite simply superb, and lives up to all the manudfacturers claims.

I didn't know what to expect from it and was very pleased. It makes the flatter, rockier riding we have a lot of in NZ a real pleasure and you can stay on your seat for more of the downhills. I'd highly recommend it.

Without a doubt the best hundred bucks I've spent in a while. After riding a heavy and cheap full suspension bike for years to tow my kids behind I treated myself to a lightweight mountain bike. Crowding 50 it made me feel 10 years younger (except for my seat bone). Most of my riding is a combination of pavement and hardpack (No X games here) and 10 to 30 miles. What's amazing is towards the end of my rides how much I was focusing on the cracks and washboards in the trail. After reading reviews on alot of different posts I chose the Thud Buster. I could not be more pleased with how this post smoothes out the bumps. I'm not big on standing up in my pedals to avoid pain and this was the ticket. One extra plus I noticed was that once you have your seat set up you don't seem to loose any peddling energy into your suspension ( I noticed this alot with my soft tail). This post looks unusual in the photo but looks cool on my bike. Happy trails :)

I’m completely satisfied
I’m completely satisfied. It looks good on the bike. About the weight issue: what is more important: 400 grams heavier bike or the ride, which is going to bring you so much joy: plus if you loose 10-30 lb in 2 months with no pain in your back - who cares those 400 grams, right? :)))

this product takes a good portion of the jolts and vibrations away, making your bike riding experience a lot more enjoyable. I would experiment a little with the settings. I am 142 lbs and found that one grey and blue worked best for my riding style. adjusting the preload noticeably changed the ride characteristics also.

Now that I 've had some time on this post I can say its a very good buy. It responds very smoothly to a wide range of impacts, to the point that you seldom feel it working. I find it very well damped for being a relatively simple system, I'd even go so far as to say that i prefer its ride to some short travel cross country bikes I've ridden. If you have a hardtail I'd definately recommend this post.

This thing is awesome
I use this on my "off-road" bike. I ride C&O canal and mountain trails with easy now.
I love this thing- you can adjust when the "give" starts and how it responds.
I thought to back-n-forth motion would be a problem, but it is actually fun.
I adjusted the front fork to be in tune with it and the whole bike sort of bounces along- its plain fun to use.
I would never go back to total hardtail and it's cheaper than a FS bike.
To me it's the best option for a hardtail- I still have HT traction, but I don't pay in the end;-)

I bought the LT model for a bike that I keep in Cyprus. Though I hate to admit it, closing in on 50 the seat post truly makes for a more comfortable ride. I am mostly a road biker, but love to ride the mountain bike when I can. To get to the trails I ride I have a 1000 foot climb in the first 2 miles. It is coming back down on the way home the the Thudbuster really has improved the ride. The faster speeds and the jarring bumps with that are much more tolerable. I debated between the ST and LT and I am more than happy with the LT. This seat post with a hardtail is a really nice combination and I feel I ride stronger with it, especially on longer rides because of less fatigue.

One of the better components I've added. Totally bombproof. Really performs well on single track. Comfortable for cross country commuting.

I had a lower back operation and want to start cycling a bit again. I have a Trek 920 mountain bike with a front adjustable shock. I am not intending heavy or really demanding routes but will do some road and some off road cycking. My question is how to decide between the ST and the LT in order to reduce shock and vibration in the lower back? I weight 77kg (about 169 pounds).
