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
wow.....that's good to know. I was impressed just by the seatpost suspension. Has to be more durable than a swing arm too.
