Very comfortable, eats up road road buzz and smaller potholes. The seat post has some setback though (I guess: effectively 20-25 mm) and combined with 72.5° seat tube it means that I had to set the saddle almost as forward as I could.

well developed as a hop on & go play anywhere kinda bike that can also be full utilitarian. but the Thudbuster's old technology; I'd look into the 3-4 seat posts out now that have been tested to be even more dampening while having a dramatically cleaner look

The Ergon CF1/Canyon VCLS 2.0 (which I have in my Canyon Inflite Al) is good, but the carbon seatpost just kept slipping in this frame (despite using all the reasonable tricks). Hence this. And - despite being old tech, weird (although in a strangely good way IMO) looking and rather heavy - the Thudbuster feels even better than Ergon/Canyon seatpost which to my knowledge is one of the best soft-riding seatposts. Of course my mind can change if the elastomer loses its elasticity unduely or some other mechanical problem occurs (knocks on wood).
