This review was written by one of our customers, Sam Hendrix. Sam has tried numerous different dropper posts in the past and this time decided to go with the brand new Fox Transfer Dropper Post Factory Series for his Trek Remedy 9.8. Being an avid mountain biker, having a dropper post that operates without flaw is a must - here is what Sam had to say:
"I have the Fox Transfer Dropper Post Factory Kashima Series 31.6 mm Clamp 125mm Travel Internal Route with the 2x/3x remote. It is on a 2014 Trek Remedy 9.8. I attempted to install it myself but I was not able to get the cable to route past the bottom bracket on the carbon frame. I did practice with the setup prior to attempting the install, and it was pretty straightforward.
I have about 15 rides on this post and I absolutely love it. The remote has a great feel to it. I had a crash and hit the remote lever, but it's still working great. My favorite part of the post is the ability to control the speed of the post adjustment based on how far you deflect the remote. This is very handy when you need to raise the seat just a smidgen. The post is very responsive and has an extremely smooth action and the Kashima coating on the post looks awesome on the bike.
