What are the pros and cons of a suspension seat post?
which one, specifically ..
well you can get a cheap one, they're out there, spring telescoping, about $25..
some saddle wiggle ... as the required precision is past the price point.
it will be a lot different than the Cane Creek ..
the Thud-Buster is a parallelogram linkage, I got it because I wanted the setback increase, it afforded
the elastomer density options offered are selected for rider weight range..
My Bike Friday Pocket Llama has a lot more exposed seatpost length , it has their LT,
for my Koga WTR, I got a ST, as the available length was much less..
German Airwing it came with was OK.. they used a splined sleeve over the top plunger stroke ..
so the saddle did not wiggle, ... but the setback was nil.
Do they really help in paved road ride quality or are they just for off road?
they absorb bumps , not much effect on chip-seal ..
big hits you should use your knees and get off the saddle anyhow.
above LT is long travel, ST, short.. about an inch ...
