SATORI HARMONY Bike Bicycle Suspension Seatpost 27.2mm, 30.9mm or 31.6mm
- I have been riding a 2013 Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 29’er Hardtail for a couple years and my only issue was some lower back pain when hitting rough terrain or long drops.
- You won’t even notice it until you need it then it just floats you along.
- This came with no set up instructions, but I played around with it for a while and got it dialed in.
- Bottoming out on this type of suspension will probably hurt more than just the bump in the road alone.
- I’ll probably ride with this for a while and update he review, but initially, seems money sell spent.
- Compared it to riding my friends Mongoose full suspension mountain bike & it felt almost like riding a cheap intermediate full suspension bike.
- Really helps since they basically refuse to repave most bike paths & roads in my town the roads can feel pretty rough of you lack suspension on a bicycle.
- Would have much rather preferred the traditional single bolt seat mount as opposed to this annoying dual bolt seat mount they use with this seat post.
- Over all it is worth the money if your tired of rough roads on a hard tail bike & don’t want to spend more money on a full suspension bike, it’s the next best thing.
- However, this issue does not occur if you hit a pothole, since you will just fall in the hole and the suspension compresses.
- I weigh 160 lbs and have the pre-load on zero but still feel that the compression is a bit harsh.
- Perhaps it would be better if I put in a spring with a smaller k constant (lb/in or N/m).
- There is about 1 cm or a third inch of sag at this setting.
- Obviously, this will post will not be as plush as a full suspension bike but it is definitely better than a rigid seat post and it does not induce any pedal bob.
- It works best over uneven terrain with like old roads with cracks, bumps, and holes of around 2 inches in height.
- I weight 145 lbs and it works just ok with the spring dialed back.
- When I lean on it, it moves up and down but still think its too stiff when dialed all the way back.
- I messed with the pre load a bit and did not really seem to notice a difference in travel.
- I have had this seat post for three months now and never had any issues.
- If you’re looking for a suspension seat post because you just can’t justify the expense of a dropper post, this product is great.
- Providing a four star review simply because I would have preferred a bit more travel in the saddle elevation adjustment.
- I just got it today and jumped same size curb and braced myself for the bounce.
- WIth this seat post no hard hit when I landed the back tire while seated.
- Not overly bouncy but not too stiff like my current post.
- My guess is about 1/2 of what an all suspension bike does but way better than a stiff post.
- Hopefully it lasts and does just as well on the trails.
- Only reason for not giving it a 5 star is because there are ZERO instructions with it.
- Looks like an allen wrench tightens or loosens the internal spring.
- I weigh 300l/b and am 6’3, this thing is my favorite part added to my 29′ bike.
SATORI HARMONY Bike Bicycle Suspension Seatpost 31.6x350mm
- The item was as described and fit perfectly in my frame.
- For the price, the product is suprisingly high quality and weighed less than I expected.
- The seat for/aft and angle adjustments can be made to suit your specific bike fit.
- The internal spring is way too stiff for your average person.
- I’d estimate that a 300 lb person would find it works, but I’m around 180lbs.
- The spring is 4″ in length and there are plenty of replacement springs sold for reasonably low prices.
- I replaced it with a Century Spring P/N C-822 which has almost the same dimensions but is a lighter duty spring.
- Even though the seatpost is still very stiff after the replacement spring, I find that it works much better for my specific needs.
- Most people will want an ever lighter duty spring than the one I replaced it with and I might get one after further experimenting.
- For the Thudbuster fans, I did use the Thudbuster but did not like it.
- The Thudbuster is an ok suspension seatpost but it throws the bike fit off since it forces the seat unacceptably too far rearward.
- There is no fix for this issue, it is the physics of the Thudbuster design.
- As delivered, adjusted fully soft, maximum compression (based on lube smears)
was about 1 cm after several riding sessions
and barely noticeable on my Mongoose Argus Sport aluminum frame fat tire bike.
- Replacing with that softer spring and adding about 1 cm preload increased travel
and reduced shocks transmitted to saddle.
- Once adjusted to satisfaction, a boot is wanted (but not provided)
to prevent abrasive debris sticking to smered grease, then being drawn thru seal
then jamming or grinding parts.
- If you have a soft squishy seat post, all the power you are producing on every peddle stroke is lost to that absorption.
- If you bike to actually get somewhere, you can’t have that.
- The only thing you can realistically get out of a seatpost is cutting out some of the quick jar that is going to hurt you–the jars that would otherwise be forced up your tailbone and result in back pain.
- I have tried the thudbuster as one reviewer said to save your money for, but he has not tried.
- If you have it set properly for your weight, it is just as stiff, but you can set it 50 or 100 pounds less and it moves a lot and you feel like you’re getting more out of it.
- If you want to absorb every crack in the road at the expense of the energy you put in, then that is the setup for you.
- If you want to get the worst part of a hard jarring from a tree root or dropping off a curb, this is a great product.
- If you’re quite out of shape, it may not do the whole job for you, but it will help to get through those first couple weeks of getting back into shape; keeping you from being in the kind of pain that would make anyone give up.
- It’s a great product that does it’s job well, when you have a realistic expectations and understand what it was made to do.
- These paired together, I can’t hurt myself biking–and I bike in a pretty brutal style that makes it do I can’t keep a bike lock on my bike because the mounts for them tear themselves apart from the shock of jumping curbs and such.
- I don’t go over big jumps or anything like that but was just looking to a little relief on over the tree root and quick drops.
- I’m 160lbs and unscrewed the tightener nut on the bottom all the way out so it should be as soft as possible.
- It seems like the collar on top of the post might be too tight as I took the tension nut all the way off (and spring out) but was hardly able to push the seat down with a large amount of pressure.
- Once the post started to move it went down as far as it should, but getting it to move took a lot of pressure.
- The most it ever depressed was 2cm so it wasn’t a relief at all on the trail.
- The clamp for the saddle rails is more secure than the one on my old post, and the preload is just about right for a 175-pound rider.
- However, I wish they made this in a little longer size.
- I had to install at its minimum insertion to fit my height.
- It works just as well as my old XCR, but it’s a quarter the price.
- It soaks up the unexpected shocks, saving your butt, your back, and your rear tire, but be advised that posts like this are not a replacement for a full suspension bike.
- Your hardtail will still ride like a hardtail, but it won’t beat you up as much.
- A word of caution: the cap on the larger tube can be unscrewed so you can remove the smaller tube to adjust the preload.
- It is not screwed on tightly enough as shipped, and it came unscrewed during a ride.
- You have to screw it on tightly using a pair of channel lock pliers with tape on the jaws to prevent gouging the aluminum.
- I mainly go on long off-road excursions and was looking for a post that I could also use with a seatpack.
- After a one long test ride I found it to be quiet, and had the perfect amount of cushion for me (200lbs rider).
- I think the satori logos suck but whatever, post works and works with a seatpack so 4-stars.
- Will update in the summer if it starts to mess up, no lateral movement either feels very solid.
- Basically just becomes a heavy solid seat post and will slightly move if u hit a huge bump.
- I weight about 190 and it works well for me on regular city streets.
- When I received it I tried to cycle it and it was very stiff and would not move.
