    I'm considering investing in one of these for my old rigid MTB. Has anybody got any experience of these things?

    Brilliant!!

    I have one on both my bikes, yes even the tri bike!!

    My Physio said anyone over 40 needs this and/or carbon stays and seatpost to protect their back. He's right.

    Forget cushy.....just today I traded in the Hybrid which had the feel of an old Caprice for a 7300 X alph sL Bontrager with disc brakes and NOW, yes, I can feel the road beneath my butt.....so thanks for your insite into my problem with "heft" to a bike....not heft...just too many dern springs and suspension posts.

    Just as long as you REMEMBER TO BOLT THE SEAT ON PROPERLY, they are just dandy...

    not a patch on a rear suspension pivot frame though.

    One seatpost up the arse is quite enough for me thank you, mind you those rubber gaitors that cover the spring.....ah never mind :D
