New Fox Transfer Seatpost Announced

by 8

Fox has, at long last, announced its new Transfer Seatpost… and a mighty perty thing it is too:

Reach for the skies! A Kashima coated post, and a lot of blue

So what’s so special then? Well, first up it’s available in a variety of flavours – 4, 5 or 6 inch drops, 30.9 or 31.6mm diameter, internal or external cable routing (the external gubbins is all mounted on the seatpost lower, which is good news), and it’s also available in either Performance spec (murdered out with a black anodised shaft) or Factory (with a Kashima coated shaft).

The remotes are available in a left-hand paddle for 1x systems, or a left or right hand switch if you’re running a front shifter. Either way, a light lever action is promised.

…and here’s the left or right hand lever.

The post is infinitely adjustable, with hydraulic internals, which (it’s reported) run on lower internal pressures – one of the reasons for that light lever action.

The cable end connects at the bottom of the seatpost, and it’s apparently a simple, tool-free job to disconnect it should you need to remove the seatpost, for example, and in the case of the external cable you can alter the angle of the mechanism up to 60 degrees from the original in-line one to allow for the smoothest routing.

US prices are $314 for the Factory post, and $264 for the Performance post. Extra remotes come in at $65. UK prices are just in: Kashima Factory post is £339 and the black-shafted (non-Kashime) Performance posts is £299. That includes the lever remote. Some posts are in stock now from Mojo –

They look very tidy – we’re looking to get one in to test, so stay tuned!

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome.

He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable.

Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles.

He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds.

He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.

    Hmmm, wonder if that under-bar remote would also work on my Thomson?

    It’s a ‘grub screw on the cable’ ended lever. Doesn’t your Thomson work the other way round, with the cable nipple at the lever end?

    Cut the nipple off then?

    Ahah! But then what will secure the other end?

    Here is how it secures, which I think is backwards compared to loads of other posts… Fox post cable pic

    Now, commence arguing over the precise definition of ‘nipple’ 😉

    First example of Post Porn I’ve ever seen.

    Looks like a bit of a homage to the KS LEV and the LEV Integra?

    Cable secures the same way as my Tmars, although the lever would probably cost as much as the post did!!
