I was just wondering whether anyone is using a shock absorbing seat post, and what the ups and downs might be for them.
Planning for the NY Century, and there are bound to be plenty of cracks, bumps, and irregularities to ride over. Thought my back and backside might be happier at the end of the day with one of these built in. The bike I'm riding is aluminum, and those bumps go straight through the frame.
So, worth it or not? Suspension post or carbon post (I've heard they absorb shock as well...)?
FWIW I'm 6'3" and about 212.
