Just fitted a Cane Creek Thudbuster. No problem in fitting it except with regard to getting clearance for the top bag on the Seat mounted pannier. Had to push the bag carrier back to get the "swing Clearance", so only time will tell if this will cause a problem. Proof of the pudding as they say, and only a short ride of 5 miles, and not offroad yet. No wonder this has been rated as the ultimate suspension post. Plenty of potholes found to test it, and it works. Movement initially felt strange, but even that was natural by the end of the ride. This is the long travel version that gives 3" of movement, and there is a short travel of 1 1/2". Thanks to getting too many shocks transmitted to the tender area, I hope I have got the right one.
