Arrow Rear Suspension Alternative

I recently invested in a "Thud Buster" suspension seat post.
After riding it for over 60 miles on the same bumpy roads that I've
rode a hundred times, I'm quite impressed. It really does work much
better than the spring loaded seat post that I had on my bike. It isn't
cheap by any means, but so are trips to the doctor for back pain after extended
rides! They make two versions, a short travel and a long travel post. I first
mounted the LT model, but it was too tall, then I swapped it out for the ST
version and it works extremely well. At about $125.00 It HAD to soften the
ride or I would have promptly returned it. It is a GREAT alternative for a rear
suspension bike. Their web site is Cane Creek*Thudbuster LT Long Travel at Tree Fort Bikes - Online Bicycle Shop
Change is inevitable and progress is OPTIONAL!
