By adding the Cane Creek Thudbuster LT (Long Travel) rear suspension you’ll ride faster, longer, and stronger with better traction, more control and less fatigue. The 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 Cane Creek seatpost provides up to 3″ of active, stiction-free travel. Unlike telescoping suspension posts, there is no initial 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
