    Sus Seatpost for 2 Stokers: 110lbs and 180lb. What to do?

    I was considering a Thudbuster ST. But I have 2 stokers at much different weights. How long does it take to change the elastomers? Or should I get a an air shock type and just change the air pressure? Sort of like the Sette Ryde ST-900 Air Suspension Seatpost. http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/166...n-Seatpost.htm Any recommendations or other ideas?
    Thanks

    Both stokers use the same saddle? If not, I would get a seat post for each one.

    i've got two seatposts/saddle setups for the stoker position. one for my wife and one for everyone else that way i don't have i don't have to mess up her position. it's a big time saver over trying to adjust one setup

    Sure, two posts and saddles is the best answer.

    Changing the elastomer before the ride would be too much work for me, might take you 5 minutes, but seems like too much hasstle. If you don't get two posts, find a compromise, but favor the heavier rider, a seat post that is too bouncy (with a lighter elastomer) is very anoying, while a seat post that is too stiff only goes in the direction of no suspension, and there are plenty of stokers who choose not to have suspension at all.

    they'll be using the same one for now. Our first priority is to get out the road bumps.
