    New question here. Thudbuster ST Seatpost - New and old elastomer - differencies ?



    Hi all ,

    i just ordered the short travel post .

    While waiting for it to arive on my door step , i searched the net some more .
    Found out , that the new elastomers are made of natural rubber - and are all black in color.

    The "old" ones were made of MCU and were different color , depending on rider weight.

    Anyone have both , and can tell me of any practical differences.


    Thanks a bunch,
    Erik

    Guess that's why my newer one came with all blacks but the instructions said they were colored. No, didn't notice any difference, and they seem to be just as effected by temps.
