My 2 Cents

Bigger tires, less air. Don't do the stem.

Suspension stems and seatposts didn't work 30 years ago, and they still don't. Save your money.

Flex stems are perfect to reduce trail 'buzz'. I love them

Someone would develop a good product. I was considering a thudbuster also.
I have a FS Klein, but its not nearly as fun as the wicked(even though I'm a lot more
beat up after I ride(bad back, shoulder etc..)Ill play around with bigger tires and see if it helps
thanks- snaps

My first cannandale came with a flex stem and it worked ok. I didn't see anything wrong with it. I currently use of all things a thudbuster and I also thing it works great! Just my .02 cents.
