Cane Creek is one of the leading manufacturers of headsets, wheels and other bicycling components.
If you have a folding bike, such as a Dahon or similar design, this is the answer for smoothing out the rough ride that typically accompanies these smaller wheel bikes.
We ask that when checking out you, please select the rider weight range so we can include the proper elastomers for your weight. Light riders will have the firm elastomer swapped for an additional soft elastomer and heavy riders will have soft elastomer swapped for an additional firm elastomer at no charge!
By adding the Thudbuster 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 provides up to 3 inches 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.
