9 REASONS To get the RINSTEN SPRING
SCIENTISTS SAY: VIBRATIONS DURING CYCLING CAN BE INJURIOUS TO HEALTH

What's ingenious for such a simple design is that the Rinsten Spring provides three directions of suspension. It travels up and down plus it rocks side to side with each pedal stroke. I like that it can easily be swapped between different bikes and is designed for all types from road to mountain to city bikes and cruisers. I think this clever suspension might be the perfect upgrade for some roadies seeking more of a magic-carpet ride.
Mr. Constantine, During Tour de Volyn
I had some skepticism about the efficiency and convenience of using a shock absorber. However, the first ride with a shock absorber "aboard" showed incredible comfort in moving through the city, with its small and large pits. In combination with a long base of tourists bikes, the effect of extinguishing road unevenness was formed. The subsequent rides only confirmed the first impression. The hard covering of the Volyn's roads is more like a pavement than asphalt, and the comfort of passing such areas was high. And the general out-of-the-way passage of the route did not bring such "severe" consequences as it was before)) The shock absorber generally does not interfere with pedaling, the effect of the "jerk" is minimal. As a result, after six days after returning home I could sit down without "oops")) Without any objections and any "but" I advise the shock absorber Rinsten!

The spring responded well, absorbing the major shocks of the cobbles with ease. I was able to stay on the saddle, rest my weight in full, the spring acting as a good shock absorber. If only there was a similar this for the stem my arms wouldn't have also felt like they were being shaken out of their sockets.
This proved true for all sections of the cobbles, even the grade 5 cobbles were coped with remarkably well. I think the wider setting on the spring would actually have caused more issues, and the tighter setting allowed it to flex with each 6" cobble easily. In short, the ride was really very much improved for me by the spring, I didn't get the inevitable, very painful sit bones, and the vicar could have probably carried on for hours with little painful effect (other than perhaps on my ability to concentrate!).
