Four months ago, Cane Creek announced their latest suspension seatpost, the Thudbuster ST, which was based on their 20-year suspension seatpost legacy and improved on the previous version in several ways. The newly announced Thudbuster LT is no different, and receives several promising updates, all based around their proven parallel linkage design. The Thudbuster LT has been completely redesigned to offer better durability, additional suspension travel, tool-free elastomer change, and a single-bolt seat clamp design. Cane Creek claims these updates equate to “the most advanced suspension seatpost ever made.”
The Thudbuster LT has also been updated to suit modern bike specs, which includes three different diameters: 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6mm, in two different lengths: 390mm and 420mm. Unlike the Thudbuster ST, which saw a rider weight limit increase, the new Thudbuster LT remains at 250lbs, which will be limiting to some people. The new post receives an additional 14mm of travel (90mm/3.54″ total) and costs $179 USD—only a few dollars more than the previous version. There are three different elastomers available for purchase, depending on your weight and preferences—soft, medium, or firm—but the post comes stock with the medium firm.
