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.

For a $800 accessory, that's a major design flaw. Hopefully the manufacturers are taking note

should have just engineered it into the seatpost somehow, I'm not big brained enough to find a good way to do that but still

@Only Fool Riding That's just to make it easy to demonstrate moving through the travel. It's not like there's extra travel when you take the air out, it's the same effect as if you bottom out when it's filled properly.
Franz Rupert

@Only Fool Riding That was to show how close the tire comes to the battery when it's fully pushed in. Letting the air out was just so he could show how close it gets on the bench without compressing the suspension by hand.

Jason Tankard Anos atrás
Well as long as he tested the battery first, and made sure his soldering job was good, then in theory no issue, he only messed with at first what seemed like one expensive battery, but he solves this by getting cheap amazon knockoffs. WIN! And he didn't fry the $800 dropper, but if it ever plays up, there won't be any warranty, because SRAM has seen his video lol

Seth doesn’t have to pay retail either and even if he did, $800 is a pittance in comparison to how much money he’s going to make off this video.

I'm pretty sure he was gifted the dropper along with his new bike. And besides, dude makes hundreds of thousands a year from his BRvid videos and Patreon donations, so worst case scenario, he could buy a new one without even feeling a twinge in his wallet.
Piotruś Anos atrás
Believe me, he is not the only person in the world, doing sometimes stupid modifications, that completely destroy the value of the part they are using, sometimes an expensive part at that, and often those modifications don't even make sense, at least he takes some effort for looks, unlike some (unlike me 🤣 )

Seth, SRAM should send you a check for doing their R&D, or at minimum, a new post, free of charge, when they inevitably take inspiration from what you just did!
uberfu 5 dias atrás
Nah ... they just need to fire the 12 yearold iditos they hired for R&D and actually hire qualified people + a Q/A deprtment of MTB enthusiasts that know how to rbeak shit before it hits the market. A wireless dropper post is a solution looking for a problem. Clears up clutter - but adds the weight of a battery pack (or 2 since the handlebar switch also needs power).

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.

They justify a markup because it's a hobby for rich people. We have $90 MTB tires that aren't anything special other than their own "branding"

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 🙂

This is exactly what I was thinking. Also I believe he should purposely put a weaker connector so that if the battery ever falls or gets yanked out said connector will just disconnect instead of ripping the tin work

As a lifelong guitar player and guitar, pedal and amp builder/modder for about 10-15 years this episode was right up my alley. I'm constantly making DC power supply's to get rid of active pickup 9v batteries and adding power supply's to lighting etc etc etc. If it has an electric pulse of any kind and can be improved in some way it WILL meet my soldering iron and I WILL get way too excited and post on Marshall amp forum about my brilliant idea after having proven it works and is indeed an improvement lol. When Seth said "for the six of you who have this problem as well" I couldnt help but feel relieved since I'm not the only one who gets excited about solving problems that only a very small amount of people actually have and even smaller amount have and care enough to fix it. Edit: EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS VIDEO IS RELATABLE! Loosing your temper and working frustrated is always a guaranteed way to become more frustrated lol. Yet I still do it....regularly....

MotoAtheist Anos atrás
Wouldn't this be bike specific? He rides a small frame which puts those components closer to the tire where a medium frame probably doesn't even come close. And it may also be just this specific bikes geometry causing the issue. He's had this dropper for some time now, on other bikes, and we never heard of this issue. So yeah, to everyone else the dropper post is likely perfect.

Then, the feeling of accomplishment will be even greater than the current frustration.

As with all new to market products the manufacturer will hold some features/design back for v2.0, v3.0 etc. I bet they already have this sorted in the pipeline for the next version, to make us buy the new one! Also, I don’t understand why they don’t combine the post control into the shifter, that would get the cockpit even cleaner. Maybe that’s coming! Love the vids 👍🏻!

You should definitely check out the Switch grade by aenomaly products its a clamp for you to run on whatever dropperpost you like and it allows you to tilt your saddle on the go, I think that sould give you enough clearance for you to run the dropper with the battery facing up front

So relatable! First couple setbacks I read the manual and watch videos.

You had me laughing so hard. I loved watching this process and can totally identify with you. Thanks for bringing up an issue with the wireless droppers. I have been thinking of getting one at some point. Hopefully this will get reengineered before I pull the trigger!
B1KER Anos atrás
I feel like there still may be a solution in the original approach. Otherwise, I wonder if you had a saddle with a wide opening in it like the Specialized Mimic. if it wouldn't matter that the post was a little higher when mounted backwards.
James Brown

Depending on your crank length, you could shorten them up to gain more clearance (seat post height goes up).

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.

You could 3d print a super thin plate to connect the seat post terminals to the battery, or you could solder wires to the terminals then run them to the location of the taped battery which would be even slimmer than the printed plate.

You could try using a saddle with a central cut out, that might give enough clearance to adjust the saddle without getting that hump.

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

GeddyRC Anos atrás
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.
Jens Hellings
Jens Hellings Anos atrás
What if you combine the two ideas? If it's the battery that's causing the bump in the saddle when you turn it 180°, then maybe install the blue battery pack with the smaller contact point to it? The tire can't rip it out because it's on the front and the bump (might?) be not there

Your video just induced that familiar feeling of putting your best effort into a really nice hack and having it fail the first time you use it. I thought for sure the second plan would work too. Funny enough, my version of commit would have been to either solder directly to the battery terminals or to crack open the case on the controller and fish a wire out. Your version of commit is probably better.

ΠΑΥΛΟΣ Κωνσταντινιδης
Seth since we loss warranty, stick the battery adapter directly on the seatpost without the extra plastic part you add in order to look good. It will be water proof and you will use the battery clip to charge it. make a small U cut on the top and put the cables to protect them from tyre scratching.
William Stapleton
William Stapleton Anos atrás
Seth, use your battery relocation hack under the saddle but attach a small smooth sheet metal plate to the saddle rails behind the connector you built. That way the tire contacts the smooth metal rather than the connector. For strength you may have to span from the saddle rails to the seat post shaft so you don’t rip the metal sheet off.

Its the early adopter fee. Any new tech always costs more because its not mass produced. I already think 200 for a dropper is crazy cuz its just a hydrolic tube but theyre way cheaper than when they were first released
Joseph G.
Joseph G. Anos atrás
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.

LOL. This is a great video! I would definitely hack the seat by welding some additional rails to it, to make it sit up another cm or so... Alternatively, you could just not drop your seat all the way, and leave a cm of clearance...

As a fellow short guy on small frames I feel your pain with droppers. Even with normal droppers often the bends in the seat tubes make it hard to run much more than a 125mm dropper on the smalls and get the right seat height.

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?

The torx screw that tilts the saddle looks like it would back straight out with the right pin spanner to remove the lock with no need for a hacksaw. Needs to be revisited for am update!

So now SRAM will redesign the whole post then send Seth a bunch of them to use on all his bikes so all his followers go out and buy the newly designed post, it's a win for Seth and SRAM.
Something Else Here
Yep. It would be a huge PR win for SRAM to hop into this chat with a meaningful response.
