It really smooths out your ride when the trail gets rough! It comes in different sizes to fit your bike and includes a few different replaceable elastomers designed specifically for your weight range. I'm 240 lbs, use the high density elastomer, and I love it.


It does get in the way of your saddle bag somewhat.

Helps smooth the ride over normal road and gravel road bumps.


Maybe a bit heavy, but I'm a recreational rider so it doesn't matter as long as it provides a more enjoyable ride.

StarStarStarStarStar highly recommended for heavyweights

A few years ago I was looking for a suspension seatpost for my commuter road bike. The roads in Michigan are crap and I'm big - 280 lbs. This was the only seatpost that could possibly handle my weight and fit my fit my frame. I've got the X-firm elastomer installed and I'm very pleased with the Thudbuster ST after putting in more than 2000 commuter miles. It really eases the ride on uneven pavement.

The seat post's suspension design is straight-forward, simple and robust. Adjusting the seat position easy and and the seat rail clamps allow for simple and quick micro-adjustments.


The ST takes care of the little stuff but the additional travel of the LT post would have been better if I had the clearance between the seat and my frame top tube. If you've got a slanted top tube or otherwise have the clearance and are looking for a suspension seatpost consider something with more travel.

Other Thoughts

Just need to add a Brooks suspension saddle to the Thudbuster to give ultimate cush to my tush!!!
