On the other hand, Julio, Tonka Yellow is a warning to motorists in those narrow passes. Love your photographs and the scenery too.

Always a pleasure to see Camel's evolution and your adventures together, Julien!  :)

All the best,

Dan.

Julio, does that Thud Buster seatpost do much for your ride on that Nomad?

If I recall correctly Dan has one too.

I have occasionally used a cheap telescoping seatpost on mine, but usually just use the solid post.  I run 57mm wide tires on mine, so already have a somewhat smooth ride.  My telescoping seatpost, I think the most movement I have gotten out of it is about 1 cm.  I have the spring tension adjusted so that my weight does not depress the spring, but any additional force on it would be enough to depress it.

I do not think there is a thread started on Thudbusters, so if you answer, maybe best to start a new thread.

Briefly, as I don't want to hijack Julien's thread --

WRT Thudbuster seatposts, George mentioned...

If I recall correctly Dan has one too.
I have four, George; two Thudbuster LT (Long Travel, fitted to my Nomad Mk2 and my Enduro-Allroad bike) and two ST (short-travel, fitted to my randonneur-pavement tourers). I'll PM you the details.

A Forum search for "Thudbuster" (no quotes) brings up a number of discussions. One is here:

I believe Julien has the Schulz G.2 LT sus-post. It is a long-travel parallelogram seatpost similar to the Thudbuster LT but with a spring instead of elastomers. See:
http://thorncyclesforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=7089.msg98502#msg98502

Best,

Dan.

George, me too the movement does not exceed 1cm, so the LT model is not necessary, the shorter is enough in my  opinion.
I did almost 20.000kms with mine, it seems reliable and works still great.

Thanks but there is adequate detail here. 

Considering getting one, but it is a low priority.  Not sure if I will, only considering it at this time.

This piece got me thinking about getting one, he does not mention Thudbusters, but similar ones from other companies.

I have a Thudbuster ST on the E-bike I ride for work, it's more effective than I thought it would be, transforms the ride, though that's a very rigid bike and it's likely I'm more sat on it than riding it compared to a non assisted bike. 
I haven't considered one for any other bike, for my riding I don't see any need, I get off the E-bike onto any of my other bikes and they're more comfortable without needing anything else.
