The most efficient suspension upgrade for hardtails. By adding the Thudbuster rear suspension, you'll ride faster, longer and stronger with better traction, more control and less fatigue.
There performance, relative low weight, and simplicity make it the best suspension upgrade you can make to your hardtail. Based on a patented parallel-linkage design, the Thudbuster LT provides up to 3 inches of active stiction to overcome - the suspension mechanism works in the direct path of the natural travel of the rear wheel. The elastomers provide the compression and rebound damping and can be easily exchanged to tune the suspension.
Bump response: The design enables the post to respond to all bumps. Unlike telescoping suspension seatposts, there is no initial stiction to overcome.
Travel: The Thudbuster LT provides nearly three inches of plush travel more than any telescoping seatpost - and continually absorbs impacts big and small.
Durability: The linkage rides on widely spaced bushings to increase lateral stiffness and deliver solid performance.
Serviceability: Split linkage arms enable ease of disassembly in the field and simple bushing replacement.
Tunability: Match the suspension to your weight and riding style by changing the elastomers. Simple.
Experience: The Thudbuster was one of the first suspension seatposts and has proven itself as suspension that works. It's also been confirmed in competition by winning racers on the National and World Cup mountain bike circuit.
A good quality seat post will save weight and hold your saddle securely. Seatposts are made in various materials, alloy and carbon being the two most common, alloy posts are lightweight, durable and cost efficient, while carbon posts are the popular choice for top end machines. Seat posts vary in where they hold the saddle relative to their own centre line so make sure you have enough adjustment on your saddle rails to allow for this or you could end up with your saddle too far forwards. A seat post needs to fit your frame exactly and are measured by as little as 0.2mm. When choosing a new one, either read off the measurement from your old seat post or measure it carefully with a vernier calliper. Make sure you lubricate the frame (unless they're carbon fibre) before insertion or you'll struggle to get it out again.
Cane Creek components have been ridden to numerous wins in world-class events. Professional racing teams that have used Cane Creek components include: Mountain Bike Racing,3D Racing, DEVO, Haro, Honda/Turner, Michal Prokop/Author Racing, Rocky Mountain, Subaru/Fisher, Trek/Volkswagen. Cane Creek started in 1995. Their first product line had brakes, headsets, hubs, and shocks. Their original air-shock design gradually won over a suspension universe that was in thrall to coil shocks. While they have continued to assert their leadership all their product categories, they have expanded into other areas that can benefit from a dose of their "technology that makes sense." In 1999 they acquired the Thudbuster suspension seat post and have since upgraded its patented design to provide what has been called the "ultimate upgrade for hardtails."
