Worth it, beginnning with first long road ride!

I am regularly riding more than 100 miles per week, training for an upcoming long distance charity ride. Just put the Thudbuster 3G on the Trek aluminum road bike last Friday (with a nothing special Nashbar anatomical road seat on top, and went for a 42 mile ride on Saturday morning over some rough streets in Los Angeles and up in the Hollywood Hills with lots of shallow potholes.
That was the first since I started training 5 months ago that I finished a ride of some distance without sore, or at least tender, sit bones.
The seat travel or flex as the post absorbs the shock is minimal, barely noticeable, nor does it seem to disrupt pedaling efficiency
Yeah, its a few grams heavier than the alloy post that came with the bike, but the comfort factor, and the absence of fatigue after a couple of hours of constant pounding on the sitbones leaves you not quite as beat up after a long ride.

Pros: This is a product that is worth the money beginning with the first long ride

Cons: Can't think of any - if you are really concerned about weight, lose half a pound and more than make up for the increase of a few ounces when you install the Thudbuster 3G.

My Back Loves it

When I first saw the ads for a thudbuster, I rolled my eyes and thought about fat old men in Spandex who probably thought that this was the best shiz since sliced bread.

I was young, healthy and fast then. Now I am old fat and damned near crippled. However, at least I can still ride. The thudbuster actually takes enough edge off the bumps both on and off-road, that I can do long rides without serious back issues afterwards.

Also, I don't notice any bobbing even on the road-bike during seated climbs!

Pros: Takes the edge-off and decreases jarring to your back on and off road. Quality, Finish and Fit are top notch.

Cons: A little pricey. The bushings are getting a little loose, but I am fat bastard and willfully negligent regarding maintenance...

Best comfort item I've ever added to my road bike. One of these came on my Salsa Fargo. I love this thing. Super nice, doesn't seem to effect seat to pedal distance and smooths the ride out amazingly. Perfect for road and gravel roads. My wife tried it out and loved it, so we had to order her one. A great addition to road, touring, cyclocross bikes. Also, the quality of the machining is superb (almost Thompson quality)

Pros: comfortable, very nice quality.

A must-have for cyclocross - if it was lighter.

I use the ST version on a 'cross bike and on my Salsa Dos Niner (softail with 1" travel).

Major improvement in comfort without sacrificing any pedaling. I wouldn't ride a hardtail or 'crosser without it.

It's cheap but heavy++. I've written to Cane Creek suggesting a lighter Ti/carbon version but never received a response. I'd happily pay the same price as a top carbon post to get something 100g lighter - I think Cane Creek are missing an opportunity in the cyclocross market.

Pros: Makes a hardtail almost as comfortable as a full susp. without loosing hardtail pedaling.

Cons: Weight. Weight. Weight.
But still worth 5 stars.

I have the 3G ST model. The post works well. The elastomer will fall apart around the corners if its not lubricated frequently with elastolube. Grease just rots the material faster, use elastolube if you can find it. The bushings wear out immediately and need to be reengineered.

Pros: The ride is superb. The machining quality is almost as nice as a Thomson.

Cons: The bushings are trash.

I like it. Well designed and produced. Quiet and comfortable. No complaints here. Great for those "old feeling days". Wouldn't recommend it for a race bike. But, great for a daily workhorse.

Pros: Spin saver

Cons: Cost
