Fox Announces 175mm Transfer Dropper Post
@gbcarmona: Thanks for the nice words! Well, of course there is a difference in operating speeds between 20°C and -5°C. But the post (given it is properly serviced) is working more than quick enough. Means, it doesn´t take a second to get back to full travel. I am appy to hear you have been abusing it and it still holds up well. No product is bomproof by the way. We do hear of problems once in a while, too and it personally bothers me a lot. Especially because it means no trail time for the customer. But no matter, how well designed a product is, there is always room to improve and there is always some percetnage that will fail. Gladly ours is ridiculously low for a dropper post. Still I want to make it even better. I´ll happily hook you up with a new paddle for your 1st gen Triggy, if you give me a shout through e-mail. cheers Sacki

First Ride: The New Canyon Strive
@powderturns: Agree! Looks like the actual seattube angle is slacker than the head tube angle. So the actual seattube angle is 66°ish. Pretty slack in my opinion. Not really helpful for long dropper posts.

Fox Announces 175mm Transfer Dropper Post
@gbcarmona: Maybe check your air pressure? I ride all my REVIVEs at 260psi (+). Our post works up up in the Nohth at our Finnish friends @ temperatures below -10°C. But make sure you do the air adjust properly. We´ve gotten a lot of happy e-mails from customers from there saying thank you. I´d be very surprised, if another post functioned better in sub-zero temps.

Fox Announces 175mm Transfer Dropper Post
@markg1150: OK, please do not get this wrong now. I am not meaning this in an offending or derogative way at all, but you do not understand at all, how a post works and what is the difference between a "regular" post and our design. Our REVIVE has a totally different approach of internals. It is not just that the´ve implemented a "reset-feature". It uses a complete different hydraulic system. I am not going to explain it here, because it was covered in media all around the world, already. Anyway, it is pretty disappointing to hear/read statements like yours, which come from someone, who does not understand the concept at all, but accusing us of covering/hiding a bad QC or design with a function/feature you wouldn´t need, if you had a good design and quality. This is extremely sad. Key point is IFP, which is uses in basically every other hydraulically locked post. This part is extremely critical to fail and it happens a lot at many other brands. It does not neccessarily have to do with QC. Seals do fail, and you can not avoid this.I You forks leaks, your shocks leak, your tires leak, even your car tires leak air. They do not leak a lot, but they do and it simply doesn´t bother you, because you simply put air back inside and you´re fine. The problem with a post is, that if the IFP fails, your post will inevitably start to get saggy. Some modles and manufacturer have big issues with a very high percentage failure rate (10 times higehr than ours) and some have less issues. Fox, however, is doing a good job in this respect. Their post is pretty reliable, and I honstly say here, that a Fox Transfer is the only post besides our REVIVE, which I personally would consider myself on one of my bikes. I don´t like their remote, though, but that´s maybe just me. The post itself is pretty well done. Chapeau!

@markg1150: Sorry, to hear that you´ve had problems with your REVIVE. What were the issues, if I may ask? I cna assure you, that we do a pretty decent QC as our defective rate figures are telling us. ;-) I bet you, other compaines that produce droppers would love a return rate of less than 1.5%. And those included issues, that are caused by the customers (i.e. oil loss during self-service, ...). No suspension produce can be 100% bomb proof, but it bothers me to hear from every single case of a customer, so we are still constantly improving. I am also wondering, what "our own problems" would be, which we´re trying to fix with our design. If you would please enlighten me?
