      Comments about Nashbar Suspension 2 MTB Seatpost:

      After applying full force to seat prior to sitting on it, shock doesn't move at all. Adjusting tension screw at bottom of post does nothing. I will maybe try one exchange but if repeat will return for refund!

      Even with the tension adjustment backed off the whole way, it still is extremely stiff. Maybe it will loosen up over time.

        This post does the job I was looking for, considerably reducing the pain of going over the ruts and bumps I encounter on my regular travel routes. It fit perfectly into my bike frame and was easy to install. I made no attempt to adjust the shock absorber. It did what I wanted right out of the box.

          It was too long it should come in various lengths. I have a full suspension and was hitting on my frame at my height. I had to cut and tap hole. I am a maintenance supervisor in manufacturing so I had access to correct tools.

              Unfortunately, the suspension of this seatpost was completely jammed and I had to return it. No vertical motion at all. I gather, from others' comments, that I wasn't the only one receive a defective one.

              Comments about Nashbar Suspension 2 MTB Seatpost:

              I purchased a mountain bike from Nashbar and as I have back issues, I purchased this post, it arrived 3 weeks ago and it was faulty, I spoke to their technical support who confirmed for me that it was faulty (??)
              I received instruction to send it back, (no they will not send a replacement until they get the bad one).
              Today I received the replacement and it is also faulty (again I had to talk to technical support for them to confirm that it is faulty....). Again they will not send a replacement until after they receive the faulty one... so again I have to go to the post office and send this garbage back. I am not happy with this seat post or Nashbar

              I bought this suspension seatpost for the lighter of my two commuters due to some recent neck surgery. The occasionally painful bump in the road is all but gone with this post. It does add a pound to my bike, but is well worth the weight sacrifice.

                  Comments about Nashbar Suspension 2 MTB Seatpost:

                  After reading the positive reviews on this seatpost, I decided to purchase it for my Specialized Hardrock sport (no suspension). I have been having intermittent back pain, and wanted to get some suspension to soak up the bumps while mountain biking. The installation was fairly simple and straightforward. One thing I don't think any other reviewer mentioned is that nashbar has recommended torque values for the sideplay adjustment and seat installation bolt. If you don't have a torque wrench, I would recommend getting this installed at a local bike shop. After greasing up the post, I turned the suspension adjustment 1 rotation, then went for a ride. With this setup, there was a noticeable spring for larger bumps, but on flat surfaces and most of the time, the seat wasn't very bouncy (a good thing!). So far it seems like a pretty ideal product (and will save me from having to buy a suspension bike near term!) Can't wait to try this thing on some trails! Great product Nashbar!

                      This seat post was purchased to replace springer seat, and the difference is night and day. It takes the shock out of regular bumps and potholes and takes the vibration out of unpaved trails. Great for long rides.
