I also have a Kinect body float on my Specialized Vado and it made an huge difference. However I’m about 135 lbs and have different springs than what you have. I will say that their customer service is incredible. I needed to call them for some specifics and found them to be patient, articulate and volunteer much info. The seat post requires a little fine tuning until it’s comfortable. Please don’t hesitate to call them with your concerns.I recently ordered a cirrus Kinect seatpost from a store online. The store rep asked me my weight which is 215 pounds. I received a medium size which on the box says 150-200 pounds. A large is rated for 200-260. Id it that much of a difference or should I send it back?
Just pick up a set of the right springs direct from Kinekt. They are only $10. Keep the black springs it came with in case you lose weight or want to let someone lighter ride the bike.Yeah I know its the wrong one I was hoping there isn't a big difference I hate returning things in the mail.
Over50: thanks for feedback on the Thudbuster. I seriously thought of getting on but didn’t have enough vertical space on the seat post. Maybe next bike.I have several. Once, they sent the wrong springs (I use black). I sent an email and Cirrus had new springs to me in about 2 days (no charge of course) with a sincere apology. Great service I've had with them thus far. I think the springs are inexpensive. Like $10 or something from what I recall.
I have to say that I've also been pleased with the performance of my Thudbuster STs (have 2) for about $80 less. Probably the Kinekt handles the very small frequency vibration better whereas they are equal in the larger bumps (IMO).
