      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.

                Using this post on my fat-bike. I combined it with a gel/suspension saddle (Selle Royal Ellipse Relaxed Saddle). It has made a big difference in comfort level. The design of the saddle doesn't interfere with my ride geometry.

                  Bought this for my new touring bike (Novarra Safari). Have one also on my MTB. Has good effect on smoothing out ride, reduces jarring from potholes, cracks, expansions, etc. Nice looking, well made, relatively inexpensive, especially for the job it does.

                  used for city/community/road rides - smooths out minor bumps - do not expect your bike ride to mirror a full suspension bike well worth the price - jury is out how long the component will last

                    First of all, keep in mind that this seat post doesn't make your bike a full suspension bike, but it works perfect by absorbing the hard impact of objects or cracks on the road as one inch big,
                    I'm very very happy with this product and I didn't know that you can adjust the tension .
