Totally unrelated, but being the captain of an AL-framed tandem I didn't have the option of putting a suspension seatpost on my seat, so I just put a Wound Up carbon post up in the captain's seat... I'm amazed at how much it takes the edge off of rough roads and even the smaller little bumps... I have numbness problems at the drop of a hat, and the first ride with the Wound Up post was the first time I wasn't even a little uncomfortable.
Very few upgrades out there where you get more comfort and shave 1/4 pound off the bike... Just another option if you don't have room for the suspension post--and even the high-end carbon posts are the same price as shock posts...
