Myy stock suspension post bottoms out at 240 and is leaking.
Anything out there that can handle 300 pounds?

No personal experience, but you might check out The Cirrus Bodyfloat Seat Post at R+E Cycles


If you ride a lot, or enjoy riding, you might also get your fit checked (is your saddle high enough?). It's then a lot easier to "post," or lift your bottom off the saddle, when you see a bump coming. Lots of people ride with no suspension other than that provided by their knees.

Now that is news to me.
Now that yiu mentioned it it makes perfect sense.
If the butt is higher up it takes less effort to raise it and I don't have to raise it as far.
No wonder my shop keeps bugging me to raise my seat.
A great tip thanks.

I will still check out that post as mine is loose and leaking.
