    Are you referring to the Thudbuster? What is the size of your seat post?

    take your seatpost off of your bike and take a good look at it. the size of the post should be listed somewhere on it. 27.2 is probably the most common seatpost size but before you buy another post make sure you find out what size you need.

    26.8 is an unfortunate size for it to be. My road bike has that size and I had a difficult time finding any seatpost that fit, let alone an upgrade. It's a post size that is mostly found on bmx bikes and some roadies. I don't think I've heard of a (good) mtb having that size. I can guarantee that you wont find a suspension seatpost in that size.

    Just because you havent heard of it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I have a top of the line mtb frame with a 26.8.
