I love my Rockshox Reverb AXS dropper post. It’s solid, works quickly, looks good, and is operated wirelessly. I’m unwilling to use another dropper post, especially one with a cable release, but it’s starting to look like a good idea. The battery in the back of the Reverb hits into my tire when the rear suspension compresses all the way. Today, we’ll seek a solution for this issue.

That was intense, the emotional involvement. I feel you, stuff like that has happened to me a lot. Thanks for showing us that hacks can go wrong, and may end up frustrating you. That's part of tinkering with stuff, but usually failure means learning. Maybe you'll wake up one morning with a perfect solution for this. Then, the feeling of accomplishment will be even greater than the current frustration.

@Brian Wright I sell aftermarket parts for another hobby. You have to be as transparent as possible, test as many combinations as possible, and take feedback given. If we were told about an issue like this, we would add a warning to the product page about compatibility issues (we have done this in the past when new products came out that were incompatible with our parts or needed extra bits to make them compatible). My company has me working 5-10 hours a week, and a part time employee working about the same, yet we manage to do it, why can't they?

I approve of the remote battery hack! I know Seth ended up just hacking off the seat post, but for anyone else: make sure the battery has some Armor against meteorites flying off the rear tire. If you pierce a flat battery pack they do tend to shoot flames.

I've known about this problem since last year. I can't believe companies release a product like this without testing it first, it's a pretty basic flaw. I have 2 friends who regularly knock the battery off with their rear tire when bottoming out. WTF.

Thanks Seth for going the extra mile. I ride a size small and go for a 150mm dropper so pointing out that flaw does highlight the cons since I'm considering getting one. As for your battery hack, I think you can get away with replicating the pads with a PCB and 3d printing the rest including a separate enclosure for your battery that is secured to your seat instead of the dual-lock.

I feel like the biking industry is the only industry that tries to justify a 4x mark up on a part because it's wireless.
I lick the insides of microwave popcorn packages
@one word Someone also had to run R&D on the product including testing, develop it and bring it to manufacturing as a whole new product. Prices are set based on how much they've spent on it and how many they're expecting to sell. They overcharge for the battery but that's about it.
liquidwombat
liquidwombat Mês atrás
@Kevin Templeton Yes but how many sales do they make based on a particular price? For example let’s say this wireless dropper cost $200 to manufacture they sell it for $800 that’s $600 profit per sale (obviously I’m handwaving away shipping and warehousing and advertising and all that bullshit for the sake of simplistic explanation) so at $800 a pop say they sell 10,000 seat posts that’s a profit of $6 million BUT if they drop the price to $400 while they’re only making $200 profit per seat post they may be able to sell 100,000 unity, generating $20 million in profit

Combine both of your solutions - turn seatpost around AND use that adaptor - in that way you can't hit it with tire AND you can still make bigger family 🙂

Waremonger
Waremonger Mês atrás
@Beno C You are correct. I have the RockShox AXS seat post as well and it's the seat post itself that sticks up and is hitting his seat. Anyone can google image search the seat post and see. Seth probably should have shown a close up though because I can understand how some viewers are confused. While I agree with Seth that this probably could have been designed better, it would only affect some brands of bikes and only the ones with Small frames which he alluded to but didn't quite spell out. All in all it's a great seat post and blows away any wired dropper post but it does have two major cons: 1) The price - it's way too expensive for what it is even though I love it, and 2) They apparently aren't manufacturing the (overpriced) 200 & 600 hour service kits. I've been on notify lists on various websites for almost a year and haven't heard anything. Any time I have manually checked they've been out of stock.

The electronic derailleur everyone who uses does not go back to cable, as the electronic has automatic derailleur hanger misalignment correction is a significant advance. Seth has a goal of testing products to the extreme and doing various tests, for him the videos generate profit and usually pay the damage, for the manufacturers is the tip of changing the battery position. And I really don't have a wireless Seatpost to give an opinion on this product, but the derailleur I have to admit that there's no way to go back to using cables after him.
JT Rider
JT Rider Mês atrás
@end I understand that, but the point I was making was… is removing a simple, and reliable cable for an expensive, bulky, and battery powered part that requires charging really worth it? In Seth’s case, it looks like it created a bigger problem than any problems or nuisances it may have solved.
end
end Mês atrás
in this case the idea is to remove the cable, the mistake is not thinking about the sag of the dampers, and the design mistake was not putting the battery in front

The early adopters will happily pay a lot of money for the new tech. Normal people like us will benefit from them paying “outrageous” prices when the product first hits the market, because the early adopters make the product market viable and the manufacturer then increases production, and other companies take note and make their own versions… all of which leads to lower prices. If nobody bought these AXS droppers now the tech would probably die and never take off.

My only concern is that the LiPo (which I recognize as being from an SCX24 if I'm not mistaken, and is a 2-cell battery) will either a) become unbalanced over time, and b) will over-discharge beyond repair, since there's no speed controller with low voltage protection. If you added a low-voltage alarm to the balance connector, it would beep when voltage dropped too low, so you would know to recharge it. That would work.

I have the same personality flaw, among others! :) Could you do both solutions at once? Or does moving the battery (again) not reduce how much the whole thing sticks up into your seat? I think the next step might be to go back to your initial hack, but then add some type of casing/protection to the battery contact so that when the wheel hits it, it can't be yoinked out of place......shrink wrap it with a plastic soda bottle and heat gun?

Great vid, super entertaining. I'd love to run that dropper, but it's too short for me....😭

Got the same post and I agree, the best dropper post I also ever owned. I live the ability to switch between my fatbike for winter and my full suspension in summer in a breeze!

You should be fine with a higher stack saddle. I haven’t found AXS Reverbs to be that reliable personally, and there’s an unacceptable amount of side to side bushing play for something so expensive. The only real upsides are the lack of a cable and how easy it is to make small adjustments to the amount of drop. I’m running a BikeYoke Revive with a PNW lever now and it’s a lot nicer than the Reverb…plus I can run a post with more drop in my frame than I can with the AXS Reverb. I like AXS shifting a lot but the seatpost is a bit overhyped in my opinion. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I haven't owned a bike for years. I started watching when he broke his leg cuz I thought it was an RC channel 😆 and now I'm definitely getting a decent bike someday just hard to make a decision on what one.

Poor guy. His dropper post needs fixed. This is such a first world problem, but I feel you, Seth. You the mang!! Keep killing it with the great content!!

Hey Seth maybe since your are no longer partnered with any specific brand and have a company that can make custom fabricated components for bikes. Maybe they could make a custom saddle rail that has a bigger rise than normal so the mechanism isn’t pushing against the seat

Maybe an opportunity to collab with Wheels Mfg again? They're amazing at solving weird problems like this, maybe they can create a new clamp with additional clearance that allows folks to flip their dropper post around like you did?

Or you could, you know, raise the post by about a centimeter. Please read page 14 of the user manual where it instructs you to check for adequate clearance between the tire and battery at full suspension compression to prevent this problem from happening.

What's the point of that? You want to slam that saddle as far down as possible. You don't want no damn battery ruining that.

I feel like Seth missed the chance to perform his ultimate hack: Grow 4 inches so he could ride a bigger bike.

Haven't we all been there... re-engineering something and hoping that it will work? As I get older I find that what worked for me for years my "kids" (now adults) break. When I asked my oldest he said "I thought anything you did would be built proof." Can't even get mad when you are getting a complement.

That is a most excellent mod. I love my AXS dropper, crazy money but sooooo convenient and tidy.
