If you have the extra length out of the frame, Thudbuster LT is even better,
more weight of rider, fine tuning potential..

Thudbuster LT FTW!!!!. I use one daily and has helped my back considerably in the last several years. It also has replaceable shock absorber pads that you can fine tune your weight and desired amount of bounce too.
