longer seatpost for a Xootr
The standard seatpost on my xootr is too short and I need a seatpost 3 cm longer (or more)
What model would fit ?
(I searched the older posts and I must admit that it is a bit confusing...)

Xootr can provide what you need. See their web site at

any other ideas ?

Look up ThorUSA. He's got Thudbusters for Dahons which will probably fit (33.9mm vs 34.0mm) but are long. Very long.

I think Calhoun Cycles in the US also has them or dedicated Xootr ones.

But what did Xootr answer you?

Hi, i have a thudbuster - works okay for me . I am 6' 2" & although I haven't measured it , it appears longer than the pole I got with the xootr. Of course , I may be wrong. Def' recommend one though.

Xootr have a Thudbuster especially to fit the Swift. It's on their web site.

Thanks to all the hard working folks at Cane Creek, we now have a suspension seat post available for the Swift. This post is the same as their famous Thudbuster LT, but with a thicker post so it fits the Swift. This is not a standard Swift seat post with the suspension mechanism bonded in, but rather it is Cane Creeks latest and greatest Thudbuster LT. The post comes with a variety of elastomers to customize the suspension to your weight and riding style. The post comes in one length which is equivalent to our XXL post. If you would like us to cut it to size please email us with your order number and your current bike size after you place your order.

Below are some of the specifications which Cane Creek has posted for the Thudbuster LT:

Provides nearly 3" (76mm) of active, stiction-free travel
Responds to all bumps, big and small
Weight: 570 grams
Comes with 3 pairs of elastomers, soft (grey), medium (blue), firm (black). Additional elatomers are available from Cane Creek for lighter or heavier riders.
Two elastomers are used to provide the compression and rebound damping meaning that you can mix and match them to tune the supsension to your specific needs.

Yep 34mm is the one.

I don't know if the weight listed on the Xootr site is correct though - the 570g is for the 27.2mm standard version. It stands to reason that the 34mm extra-extra long ones are a bit heavier. I would be more inclined to accept Thor's weight numbers. Plus he's $10 less expensive. :) Plus he offers the other roadie version also.
