Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost
By adding the Cane Creek Thudbuster LT (Long Travel) suspension seatpost you'll ride faster, longer, and stronger with better traction, more control, and less fatigue. The performance, relative low weight, and simplicity make it the best suspension upgrade you can make to your hardtail.
  • Based on a patented parallel-linkage design, the Thudbuster LT seatpost provides up to 3" of active, stiction-free travel
  • Unlike telescoping suspension posts, there is no initial stiction to overcome--the suspension mechanism works in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel
  • The elastomers provide the compression and rebound damping, and can be easily exchanged to tune the suspension
  • Includes black elastomers: 2 medium, 1 soft, and 1 firm
  • All aluminum construction

    Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

    Got back into mountain biking after 15 year hiatus. I managed to compression fracture 2 spinal vertibra and herniated 6 discs in an accident 6 years ago.

    So I got back into mountain biking and after purchasing a bike and going on 2 rides I realized I had made a mistake. My back could not take the hits like I used to. I decided to give this a try before giving up on mtb.

    To my surprise it worked perfect, so good in fact that I am riding much rougher terrain now at the age of 47 and my back feels better than it did when I used to ride full suspension at age 32. If you have back problems this is a. Must

      Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

      I went for my first trail ride on my hardtail mountain bike, and the seat performed really well. It is a little bit tricky to get the elastomers dialed in just right but once you get the it right it absorbs all the harshness. You need a combination of two elastomers in the long travel seat. I'm a big guy (6'6", 255#) and require two firm elastomers. I had to order one, as it comes with one in the box to get the right combination. You can order up to extra firm, which is good if you're heavier than 270 or so.

        Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

        PURCHASED THIS SHOCK AS THE STANDARD SPRING SHOCK DID NOT MEET MY NEEDS, NEEDED BETTER SEATPOST SHOCK ABSORPTION DUE TO BACK ISSUES. THIS SHOCK DID THE TRICK. STANDARD SEATPOST SHOCKS WORK ON AN UP AND DOWN MOVEMENT BUT WHEN RIDING THE BOUNCE IS ALSO REARWARD. THIS REAR BOUNCE IS NOT REDUCED BY STANDARD SHOCKS. THE THUNDERBUSTER IS ON A PARALLAGRAM SHAPE TAKING THE BOUNCE SMOOTHLY, UP AND DOWN AND REARWARD. TODAYS RIDE IS THE FIRST TIME MY BACK DID NOT HURT AT THE END OF THE RIDE. SHOCK IS FULLY ADJUSTABLE FOR WEIGHT (DIFFERENT INSERTS) AND ANGLE WITH EASLY ADJUSTED SCREWS TO MICRO ADJUST THE SEAT ANGLE. THIS SHOCK WILL ENABLE ME TO CONTINUE RIDING...

        • Absorbs Bumps

          Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

          I've used the Thudbuster LT on a HT bike riding challenging trails for 2 years now. It is a definite improvement in the ride--absorbing the bumps much better than before. One can also push harder, longer. You do not use your legs as shock absorbers as much--increasing endurance. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a Hard Tail bike.

            I started out putting these on my mountain bikes and was happy with the support they offer. And then I found out they are made in different stem sizes and that's all she wrote. A little on the pricey side but what's your lower back worth? I now have them on my Surly Long Haul Trucker and my Giant FCR3. Well worth the price.

              It makes the hard tail more like a full supension. I can loosen it or tighten it a needed.
