Suspension seat post on ur gravel/CX bike

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Suspension seat post on ur gravel/CX bike

I have thudbuster lt on my mtb that I can swap to my new bike if I need be. As in the future I hope do lunar Kanza/ dirty Kanza in the future. Wondering if anyone else running one?

I have a Cobble Gobbler seatpost on my Crux. The Monster Cross has a rigid post, but the Brooks saddle does provide some suspension.

IMHO, the need or not for a suspension seatpost depends largely on the frame geometry, tire pressure, frame material and riding style.

I put some real thought into it, but ended up just going with a sprung Brooks. It's a bit heavy, and it's definitely uncool by most standards, but it works quite well.

I tried a Thudbuster on my Fargo. My Brooks is comfy enough without it.

Sold it!

Don't need one on my Merckx either. Just run a little lower air pressure.

You'll be fine.

I don't have one on my gravel bike but on my MTB. It completely changed the feel of the bike and actually had it for sale prior to the seatpost change. Not sure I would of gotten one even at my cost but got this it incredibly cheap and is like brand new.
