    Suntour suspension seat posts with gel seat

    Indeed. :) Although going off road with ease is one of an ebike's best abilities. Going off the beaten track is a desirable option for me. Especially now that almost every bugger on lockdown has bought a bike. :rolleyes:

    Then again, I found that a cheaper seatpost also does a good job. :)

    Suntour suspension seat posts with gel seat

    I made this video a while back. They do make a good difference, especially when going cross country. Are they worth the money.. For me, the answer would be yes. :)
