Shimano Launches Pro Bike Components Koryak Dropper Seatpost - First Look
yea, a ballscrew system could work but would be slow to actuate (unless your motor is very strong and there's low friction in the assembly), but it's definitely more heavy. There's definitely more than one way to do this, and there's probably someone working on a unique solution as we speak. Having a port on the frame to plug into, which has internal leads and ports along the frame for different components would be pretty cool. I'm not a fan of wireless in this application thanks to my Mfg Eng experience with military systems, but a variety of ports and a simple port into the head tube area would be pretty cool.

Cool. those are all cool reasons, but I doubt an electronic remote will suddenly be able to perform a drop or have a linear encoder for positioning itself at the cost these will be. You can disagree but the reality is what we are left with, which would just be electronic actuation, not positioning (unless a linear encoder is implemented, not cheap to implement), which has no realistic benefit unless the actuation is too hard for ones hands or potentially wireless which just adds more complexity. I think multiple 'hot keyed' buttons would be cool as well, mainly for controlling suspension.

Ever check out the price on Pro components? Not cheap.

There is very little advantage to a electronic solution for this application. I would expect something in the future though, along with a 150 option since it would tie into Di2. The cable actuation is extremely reliable however.

Sam Hill to Skip Andorra World Cup, Focus on Enduro Instead
@bfrich: Yea, Richie was picking up his speed for sure, who knows what he may have accomplished in DH had Yeti continued the program. That said, he came into his speed in Enduro it seems.

Its not one person. Its an entire trend. Look up roots and rain and look at the historical results of former DHers and current enduro racers. It proves me right. Because stats.
