cane creek post

Just a curiosity question, did anybody try the cane creek thudbuster post
? I remember seeing one fitted on a wilder uni at NUC, but did not get any
feedback from the rider(s).

Chris Reeder has one. Pic and some info on it @

memory serves.

I think John Foss has one too…?

I have a Thudbuster Uni-Pivot post on my carbon. As far as I know, my post
is all Thudbuster. With the name Uni-Pivot, obviously it was the right
choice for a unicycle, especially the Telford (with its angled seatpost).
But alas, they don’t make it any more.

Chris’ post gives a very sweet ride, so I recommend it if you have the
height clearance to fit it on your unicycle.

My carbon is one unicycle I actually have pictures of online. Go to my
Unicycle Stuff Photo Albums page and click on “The Garage” (not to be
confused with my separate Garage Page):

Hummm looking at www.canecreek.com I notice the attachement to (obviously)
the wilder rail bracket is the standard ‘generic bike post’ one, with one
bolt in the middle. Bad, I already destroyed 2 similar attachements.

Did you (chris reeder / john foss) have any related troubles ?

I use the Thudbuster quad on my Telford. It is great, but adds a lot of
height. You need long legs.

Chris’s Thudbuster was slightly modified. I really can’t describe it
without a picture in front of me, but he removed the pins at the pivots
and essentially reversed the parallel, vertical bars. I think the reason
was to make the unit pivot more “up and down” rather than “forward and
backward”. If you compare his picture with the one at unicycle.com you
should be able to figure it out. Or you could always e-mail Chris himself
:smiley:

This “modification” of the thudbuster consists of removing the pins at the
bottom pivot, flipping the shock 180 degrees with respect to the post, and
then replacing the pivots. This “kinks” the post and allows the shockpost
to compress vertically downward rather than down and backwards (as needed
for a bike). It also shortens the shock portion of the post, allowing you
to drop the seatpost further. If you don’t do this modification you get
very little flex out of the post. With this modification I got 3" of
travel out of my thudbuster post. However, after riding a couple of days
with it like this I decided I didn’t need it anyway.

My opinion is that a seatpost shock is nice for long-distance rides over
easy terrain where you are sitting down the whole time, but if you are
going for shorter rides or more technical rides (where you are frequently
standing up) it isn’t necessary and just adds weight.
