I have a Tandem and any stoker on one will tell you they are necessary. On a Tandem you spend a lot more time sitting, and the Pilot does not always warn the stoker of holes or bumps coming up. Very Painful. However, on a solo, you can see the lumpy bits coming up and you will be out of the saddle. No need for a Suspension post. Perhaps no need, but if you feel you need one, then do get a good quality one. The Thudbuster works, but you need at least 4" of stem out of the seat tube. Action on it is smooth, and Does not affect leg length as much as a conventional up and down suspension post. The cheap suspension posts wear out pretty quick, or have stiction, or just do not work.
By the way not as light as you at 150lbs, but the thudbuster set up for me has taken 190lbs, and a youth at 100lbs with no problem.
