cane creek short post and suspension

I've had this system on my bike set up since 2015 and it is very good. I'm in my 60' and find it very efficient at absorbing impact and shocks - I still jump off kerbs etc.. I think the price could go down by about 30% though.

Smooth as Silk

I have coupled the Thudbuster ST with a Brooke's Imperial saddle for the purposes of Touring, the set up works brilliantly. I went for the XL, (extra long) model and found it to be a shade shorter than the existing seat post so it fits perfectly. The Thudbuster is not as heavy as I had anticipated and works a treat absorbing bumpy roads offering a smooth ride all the while, so, unless you are a Racing Snake and interested in shaving gramms here and there I honestly don't think there is any weight penalty for having this level of comfort. Not only does it work well but it looks great on the bike. I am now looking forward to giving this set up some serious testing over the coming months with extended tours of Taiwan and New Zealand on the agenda. I already know that I'm going to enjoy a much more comfortable tour than previously experienced. . Very happy with this purchase.

Smooth rides from here on out!

I originally bought the other type of thudbuster, but unfortunately it was too tall for my bike and when mounted I couldn't reach the pedals. Tredz were excellent and let me swap for this model, which is brilliant! It has saved my bum from multiple impacts and makes my daily commute to work so much more comfortable! Would recommend to anyone with bumpy rides!

Good performance, but not cheap

High quality product that does a good job subduing bumps on a road bike, but quite expensive for what it is. Much better than the cheap alternatives though.

Seatpost suspension smoothie

This seat post seems to have no hysteresis so that is smooths out the bumps immediately. Designed for offroad but works well for ageing bones on tarmac.Price is high but quality is also high.

Seatposts Guide

What are seatposts?

The seatpost is the extendable metal rod that slots into your bike’s frame, with a clamp at the top to hold your saddle.

Who needs a seatpost?

Every bike has a seatpost, but a common reason for fitting a new one is to get a longer post for a leggy rider. Weight saving is another prime reason for upgrading.

What are the choices?

You need to pick the right seatpost width for your frame, but then you will have a choice of materials, from practical aluminium to weight-saving carbon. Mountain bikers can also opt for dropper posts, which are tremendously useful out on the trails.

What should I buy with them?

You might need a different seatpost clamp to go with your new seatpost and hold it firm in your frame.

Anything else?

Finding out which seatpost width you need can be a tricky business. With luck it will be stamped on the inside of your bike’s seat tube. It is measured down to tenths of millimetres, so eyeballing it with the tape measure won’t work.
