First Impressions of the GANOPPER Suspension Seat Post and Cloud-9 Cruiser Saddle on the Rattan LF-750w
So, with a bit of effort, I installed and successfully tested the GANOPPER Suspension Seat Post and Cloud-9 Cruiser Select Saddle on my red Rattan LF 750w. As I stated previously, on my bike, the seat was really hard (and a bit on the small side), but was also seemingly impossible to get off the post. I decided to circumvent that by getting the post mentioned above and the wider saddle seat.
After my ride today I can say it’s definitely an improvement, although still not seemingly as nice as the seat on my wife’s “identical” (but black) LF 750w, which we received about a month or so after mine, but featured several different parts. I’ll continue to do more testing, but this is probably the last thing I’ll tweak.
The GANOPPER seems fine, although I may want to give myself a bit more spring than how it’s set by default, which seems rather stiff for my weight. Being slightly uncomfortable (although less so than before) may just be how my butt is on a bike (I also get uncomfortable on many hard chairs). And, side note, even though the GANOPPER lets you pick the 30.4mm size needed for this particular bike, it just comes with a plastic adapter. It works, but is obviously not as nice as having the whole metal post the exact fit like with the original post.
