Description

Drop in.

Sweeping berms and undulating trails are best left uninterrupted by frequent stops to re-adjust a rigid post for the section ahead. Preserve the flow and enjoy the ride with the FOX Racing Shox Transfer Performance Series Dropper Seatpost - Collar Routing. Featuring a black anodized upper post and hydraulic internals, this dropper sits stealthily under your saddle to manage transitions from stomach-dropping descents to rip-roaring singletrack with a quick flick of a handlebar-mounted lever.

Like any good dropper, the Transfer prides itself on adjustability, but it doesn't just stop with height. The cable junction pivots to sit at angles ranging from 60-degrees rearward to 60-degrees forward of the in-line position, which means it'll work smoothly with any cable-routing setup, eliminating twisting, bunching, and general messiness. It also connects on the lower, stationary half of the post, so you can cut the cable to precisely the right length instead of having to leave extra to accommodate the movement of the post. As an added bonus, a tool-free cable disconnect feature makes for easy installation and maintenance.

FOX Racing Shox offers two separately sold lever options for its Transfer dropper posts. The left side below bar mount sits similarly to a standard shift lever, adding clean symmetry to one-by systems. The left/right on bar mount sits how we most commonly think of dropper post levers, and provides clean integration with any shift system.

  • Transition seamlessly between climbs, flats, and descents
  • Hydraulic internals for smooth, light actuation
  • Stealthy black anodized upper post
  • Lower post-mounted cable junction for clean lines

Great Dropper Post

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I rode this all winter in the Pacific Northwest. Took it through rain, mud and muck without any issues. Rode it when it was below freezing, no issues. Took it from sea level to 3000' multiple times without any slip or hesitation. I would definitely recommend this post.

Several issues but it works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Me and a few other people have had the plastic switch on the stem of the dropper break. I expect to have it covered under warrenty because it sounds like that's been the case.
The post itself has a few milimeters of play within the external housing, you dont notice it when you're riding though. I've been told that's just how they are.
This post is about an inch longer than it's competition, keep that in mind when you decide how low you want your lowest seat height to be.
I would have just bought the hydraulic version, or spent an extra 100$ on a completely different dropper without these short comings.

Flawed design

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

At first glance and in my research, this post seemed awesome. However, after 3 weeks of use ( I got the externally routed post), the mechanism began seizing up. It is exposed to grit, grime, and moisture and not protected at all and it failed in the middle of a stage at the pisgah stage race. Brought it to The Hub and those guys took it apart but couldn't figure out the what was up (if those guys can't figure it out I don't think anyone can). They eventually just soaked it in tri flow and it freed up. However, within two rides the mechanism seized up again and the post would not stay up when I sat on it or down. I have since returned the post. Bummer as I had thought the Fox posts would be on the more reliable side. Hopefully mine was just a lemon.

I've had it for months riding through rain, grit, mud, etc. and it's functioned fine. Think you just got a bum one.

Great dropper

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Nice that the cable attaches at the bottom of the post so it doesn't make a big loop when you drop the post. Love that fox offers in both colors.

transfer post and lever (separately)

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

great post, works well. the only issue is not really an issue. the cable actuation for the external post is really exposed for dirt and crud to get into the cable. so seal up the ends and you should be good for a while. I do wish this connection was a little more elegant, mostly because the internal and external posts cost the same. it should look a bit more engineered for this price point.

I would buy again. and I did, from somewhere else though who included the lever for the same money as just the post here.

Is this cable routing direction on the right side of the seatpost
Can it be able to switch to other (left) side?

Do you need to buy a special seat clamp?

Hey Eric - You do not need a special seat clamp for the new Transfer Performance Dropper Seatpost but you do need to buy the Seatpost Lever Assembly (Item #FRS005J) separately. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
