Cane Creek 3G Thudbuster LT Seatpost -
3G - the 3rd generation of Thudbuster seatposts from Cane Creek. A full 3 inches of travel with a preload adjustable, two-stage elastomer shock. Quality construction with an aluminum mast and links. The 3G features a forged linkage with wider-spaced bushings to increase lateral stiffness and a micro-adjust seat clamp. Split link arms enable ease of disassembly in the field, and simple bushing replacement. Lusting after a full-suspension ride, but just can’t afford it right now? The Thudbuster is a great stopgap solution, adding additional comfort and control to your hardtail.

Support and Cushioning:

  • All in all well worth the price if you want a hard tail but need some cushioning.


  • Installed on my favorite hard tail mtb, I ride 12 miles to the trails, approx 10 miles on trails and back to home again,,, I need to sit down some time ( over 50 you know :) the motion is very natural,, the suggested spring( rubber) rates are accurate for the riders weight.... If ya have the dough $$$ and have extended saddle time,,,,this is an upgrade.


  • I put this product on my 20yr old Cross Bike to absorb the bumps along the way. I like that this product adds a shock-like feel to a rigid frame without the energy loss. This product is pretty expensive and depending on your weight you may need to purchase additional elastomers from the manufacturer. (I could not find them on JensonUSA site)
  • We bought one for my wife who has lower back issues. It rides very much like a plush full suspension frame, although it does little or nothing to aid in traction or tracking.


  • R U seated comfortably? Then lets begin
  • After installing, I rode all my usual trails and single tracks, and was able to stay comfortably seated for MOST of the parts I'd be standing. And even while standing, leaning backward into the seat with my thighs, acted as shock absorber. I love this thing!


  • Strong construction (10)

Lining and Layers:

  • Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


  • I am a recreational mountain biker. That goes once a week out for a 20 to 25 mile ride. I took the thudbuster to a marathon recently near 55 mile ride and made the difference. Great for my lower back and not to heavy that makes it a no brainier for those with entry level hard tail mountain bikes.


  • Might get one of these for my Dad, as the only reason he's looking at full suspension is his back.


  • Great product

  • Ordering System did not allow me to nominate that I wanted two black elastomers and I was surprised that the postage was extra to Australia. Now I am using the Seatpost it flexes too much and really needs firmer Elastomers to manage my weight.

  • It is very well built, and well designed, light for what it is, but a little bit ugly.

  • Except for interfering with my current seat bag and not looking very attractive, the Thudbuster LT is a great remedy for an old back when riding my 2012 Specialized Rockhopper hardtail.
