Why We Like The Transfer Factory Dropper Seatpost

The Transfer Factory Dropper is Fox's top-of-the-line dropper post, providing exceptional reliability on the trail, as well as buttery-smooth operation thanks to its Kashima-coated stanchions. Building upon the success of the original, the new Transfer gets lighter and more compact, and it's now easier than ever to perform a service. The insertion length is a whopping 30 - 50mm shorter than the original, allowing many riders to opt for a longer travel post, especially if their previous one was bottoming out in the frame.

Under Warranty

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

I suppose this is a great dropper. However, I returned it before using went I learned from a friend that it's under a warranty campaign in which faulty parts need to be replaced. Backcountry sold me a faulty product and I gave my friend a six-pack for the heads up. Not okay, Backcountry.

Junk. Sticks down especially in the cold

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Mine came stock with my Pivot. It did not take long to begin getting stuck in the down position. This issue is much more pronounced in the cold. And by cold I mean anything below about 45. As others said, you need to bounce your butt on it with the dropper lever depressed to get it to come up. Ditching mine for a BikeYoke.

Works great if you get it re-pressurized

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have four of these - all of them work great. But there is a catch that everyone is talking about here. Fox under-pressurizes these from the factory. Two out of my four would sometimes need help going all the way up, especially in the cold. I took them to Suspension Syndicate who services them with a slightly higher pressure to make them work correctly. Voila, after servicing they work perfectly. The other nice thing about the transfer is a low stack height, so it gives you more room if you're close to full insertion depth. The method of attaching the seat also works much easier than most.

Trash

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The reliability issues with this seat post are bad enough that I would not ever consider buying one again. My '22 Switchblade came with a Factory Transfer seat post and it hasn't worked since my first ride. It would stick in the bottom position and stop about 1/2" short of full extension when I could coax it into extending in the first place. I had a bike shop rebuild it - worked for one ride, then back to the same problem. I then had it sent to Fox for warranty service - came back, worked for one ride, then back to the same problem. I clean the stupid thing rigorously after every ride and coat it with chain lube before every ride, and it still sticks in both bottom and short of the top positions. The cherry on the sundae is that when I had it sent to Fox, a bike shop sold me a non-Factory Transfer seatpost, and that one developed the same sticking problem in the span of 3 rides. Save yourself the trouble and buy literally any other brand. I look forward to throwing both my crappy Transfer seatposts into a hot campfire.

Dropper broke 2 months in

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Had the dropper on for about 2 months and the post stopped extending the last inch or so. Today, all of the oil just leaked out from the bottom of the frame. A lot of people seems to have the same problem.

don't waste your time with this!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

My wife and I have these on our bikes, they came from factory (Pivot), they worked great for about 3 months, then the issues started. We did the recommended "fixes" checking seat post clamp torque, applying a light coat of lubricant, Slick Honey, and nothing has changed. I find it ironic that the kashima coating would stick, maybe that's not the issue, but it certainly hasn't prevented it from sticking. It sticks in both directions. We are "fair weather" riders and keep our bikes very well maintained. We are very disappointed and will look to replace them. Talking with others, and bike shops it seems to be a known issue with these. We have LEV on our fat tire bikes, and they are fantastic. Hopefully should you decide to purchase these, you will have better luck than we have.

Not up to scratch

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have the previous version on an older bike and not had a single issue with it for years. I have a 150 and a 175 of this model and they are the same issues... stick stick stick (very early in the purchase cycle, a few months). Has to be a poor design in my mind. Could be poor manufacturing control during covid I suppose, but man. Constantly doing a tap dance with it. to get it where I want it.

Still sticks

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this after a few scary experiences with a mid-level post refusing to lower when it was supposed to. Turns out, even the top-end dropper posts don't work correctly. The tips they give are to increase the tension on the cable and to torque the stem band correctly. These definitely help, but it still sticks almost every time you try to raise it. To get it to raise, you have to plop down with the lever depressed to break it free. Then it raises easily. Lowering isn't an issue. The collar can't get any looser without the seat moving, and the cable couldn't be any tighter without pre-loading the post actuator, which probably isn't good for it. Really, there just isn't enough pressure to overcome the break-away friction, and there's no way (that I can tell) to increase it. It's very likely the best post available, and having trouble raising the post is much less of an issue than having trouble lowering. But the fact that the top-of-the-line option still doesn't work correctly is ridiculous. Just a little bit more pressure and this would work perfectly.

Stick

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I recently purchased a new bike with a 150mm transfer installed, and it hasn't worked properly from day one. When lifting, the post gets stuck about .5 in. from the top. This problem is made much worse in the presence of dust; I recently raced in dusty conditions and had to manually pull up my seat every time I needed to pedal.

Lasted about 4 weeks

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

When it was working it was excellent. I was riding 10-14 hours a week on the post. I ordered this in June (2021), had my LBS warranty it with Fox in July, got it back in August, just dropped it off again (September) for another warranty to Fox. Issue is the same, the post doesn't return to its raised position. You have to hold the dropper lever then lift it up manually. This second go around, along with not returning to its raised position after about 40-50 hours of riding, the seal and spring around it at the top worked its way through the collar and up the seat post. I am not really sure what is going on to have the issue repeat after four weeks, but to have to submit it for a second warranty for the same complaint in three months is frustrating. I would not recommend this.
