Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by scarleto Works really well. I bought a road bike and was concerned about the impact on my lower back of going over rough roads on the daily commute. I am used to a hybrid with a suspension seat post and wanted similar for the road bike. Bought this after a lot of research. Other brands seem to come with only 1 spring where this has 3. It is the same weight as original alloy seatpost. It really takes the sting out of speed bumps and potholes. I used the heaviest spring because I did not want it to be springy when i sat on it. So it feels like a normal post until you hit those bumps. 21 February 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Thehappybiker Good suspension seat post for hardtail bike 2nd try at writing this , halfords wiped the first... Ah !!! Anyhow, brought this to fit on my hardtail bike abroad. Easy fit, I had the old style post, but this works with the seat rails. Used the medium spring (fitted) for my 78 kilos and tightened the spring adjuster up / clockwise 1 full turn. To check, sit on the bike and see how far the gator / spring is compressed, mine is about 1/3rd. I think it should be less than 1/2. This allows for the spring / Gator to compress over those hard deep bumps etc without bottoming out. On another note, you need at least 70mm from the frame to seat fixing to fit this, This not mention in the information supplied or advert. See my photo attached. Also others have mentioned about the gator not being secure, mine is okay, but as mentioned just use 2 tie-wraps. Also keep / check that the locking ring at the bottom of the gator is tight. every ride !! Otherwise great bit of kit, and saves your back / spine. Lastly I have fitted the Ergon style handle bar grips/ ends to ease the jarring on the palms / wrists . Hope this info helps someone, enjoy your biking and stay safe. P.S need to search for a 30mm dia one now, for the home bike. 31 August 2015Rated 5 out of 5 by daveclsh best you can get for the price I had my reservations about this seatpost before I got it from Halfords but so happy I did get one , the extra weight compared to a normal alloy post is not realy an issue, just spend a bit of time trying the different springs out and getting the preload right and away you go , it takes all the road and trail rumble out of a ride and even the slightly bigger hits too, keep the splined bit under the rubber cover greased and you wont have any probs, I can honestly say I'm more than happy with mine , its used for canal towpaths , roads and proper mtbing 23 July 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by aaran0192 Good Post Post was easy to install, and is so far so good. Helpful if you have an old bike and want a new seat. 29 January 2015Rated 3 out of 5 by Orac1965 Seems to work, although collar needs improvement With many suspension posts costing at least 7x as much as this one, I frankly bought this as a gamble. It seems to be doing its job quite well - my back is feeling much less jarred, and (so far) it is standing up to my 125Kg, thanks to the stiffer spring supplied with the unit. Unfortunately the bits to protect the top of the mechanism just don't seem to work; there is a concertina-like sleeve to protect the slidey part of the mechanism, but the bottom collar doesn't seem to have a thread that matches the bit it is supposed to attach to, so the sleeve just flaps around. I imagine this will cause the unit to fill with grit eventually and fail :( 30 December 2014Rated 4 out of 5 by mixmix Parts missing Quality is quite good looks well made. Parts missing twelve mile round trip to change,get staff to check its all there including instructions. 12 December 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by Robanybody good value for money Overall a good bit of kit. There are 3 different spring strengths ex: 1st = minus 66kg, 2nd = 66kg to 85kg (fitted in place) and 3rd = plus 85kg. My box had been opened and the (1)sheet paper manual was missing and i was left perplexed. I could not find it online and went to halfords and they checked another box and gave me that manual. Very basis instructions and info but it is all explained logically,. make sure of the size, as the post is 27.2mm with a 28.6mm shim in the box. Fitting is for a RAIL seat. You would need a ROYAL seat adapter for the old tradional mountings. Only bad point is the Rubber sleeve, which needs 2 cable ties to hold it in place. 30 August 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by saww bike hut seat post great price easy to fit 27.2 standard easy fitting seat fits nicely,3springs so any wieght setting,looks cool too 06 August 2014
