Touring - Suspension Seat Post
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Just curious. I've been looking at suspension seat posts for my tourer. If you have one I'd be interested in what you think of it. I did a search and found some good comments. It seems the cheap ones stick in winter and mush in summer. Also, I have an older bike with a 26.4mm seat tube. I wondered if a smaller post (25.0-25.4) would work with a shim. Any comments are appreciated. Happy winter riding!

Although it somewhat dampened the harshness of riding on rough terrain and taking out some road vibrations, I was never completely happy with my Rockshox seatpost on my Mtb. IMO, a sprung saddle does a much more effective job. I ride a Brooks Conquest on my Mtb/tourer and does the job quite well.
