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:

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...

Very nice ride on a HT.

About Me Avid Cyclist

Pros

  • Absorbs Bumps
  • Increases Endurance

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Mountain Biking

    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.

      Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

      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.

              I recently purchased a carbon 29er and the Cane Creek makes it feel like a full suspension bike. Easy on the back, gret comfort.
              Plus---customer service at Nashbar is excellent

              Thudbuster LT Saved My (Hard) Tail

                Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

                I ride a local singletrack during the warmer months but my Specialized Rockhopper--which I love--is a hard-tail bike. Due to having back surgery, I needed a less jarring ride but since I only ride a few times a month, I couldn't justify buying a new full-suspension bike. The Cane Creek Thudbuster LT was the perfect upgrade to save my tail, and keep me on my favorite hard-tail.
                The Thudbuster LT came with a variety of rubber grommets--and weight chart--that allowed me to tune the ride precisely for my weight.
                The bike's weight hasn't increased noticeably and I can even use my small seat bag with the new seatpost.

                  Comments about Cane Creek Thudbuster LT Seatpost:

                  I have used a Thudbuster on my single-speed for years. Although I was initially concerned it was a bit "gimicky", it allows me to stay in the saddle longer without sacrificing hard-tail handling. Install and forget reliability. Great for long rides on mild to moderate bumpy terrain.
