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

@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?

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 🙂

@R C but the battery was impacting the tires not the seat

I think turning the post around would limit the seat from pointing low enough.

@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.

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.

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.

There's just no way. I wish people wouldn't pay outrageous prices for things just to say they have it. So it's worth 600 dollars to not have a cable but have to keep up with a battery?...I can't see it. That being said love the channel keep up the good work!

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.

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

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 أشهر قبل
@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
Kevin Templeton

Manufacturers have no need to justify what they sell, they just need to make sales. The customers justify the markup by buying the product despite it.

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

@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.

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

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?

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.

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 👍🏻!

"And... I could have my cake and eat it too" The face and the tone... this needs to become a gif and it's primarily gonna be used by engineers and general hacksmiths :))

That's the kind of thing that would have me run a MX wheel size.

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.

That is absolutely ridiculous that they wouldn't engineer it differently for full rear suspension movement. Not really a hard fix as Seth has just shown us, just run a remote battery via wires under the seat.

I find the second version better: you could cutout the part of the saddle which is in interference and be good to go.

I'm surprised SRAM's engineering dept. let that design issue through

Just a little feedback, it seems that recently you've switched your color grading up and I find it to be too dark and grey. More than once i've jiggled my mouse around thinking I must have had it over the player causing some controls to pop up and dim the screen or something but it's not that, it's just the way the video is. Your videos have always looked great in the past so I figure maybe you're trying something new and this is the internet so unsolicited feedback inserted here.

Hey, seth🤘 What if you make a smaller or lower battery?

Fun video but this illustrates the silliness of some wireless bike components. In the quest to eliminate one tiny dropper post cable we now have battery packs, worse form factors, and the always perfectly reliable Bluetooth connections to deal with. Sometimes it's just better to keep things simple.

Open up the post side of everything and tap into the back side of the contacts, run wire to previously placed batt…nothing to knock off and you still have removable power to the system

I'm sure out of the 300k+ (will probably be double that next week) at least a handful of people are at work right now building a solution to send to Seth ... Amazing for as long as he's been doing it, he continues to be at the forefront of new ideas.

I see the merging of the RC hobby and mountain biking has come through again! Except I'm not sure I would want a lipo near that part of my body 😅
