Very good, but...

The Switchgrade is a very sturdy assembly with a flawless actuation mechanism. The building quality is evident and partially justifies the price, which, IMHO, is still high despite the craftsmanship and the low production rate. Nevertheless, the functionality it provides is invaluable and helps a lot in relieving saddle pressure during steep climbs, which is the condition I mostly appreciate and the reason I bought it for.
On the downside, I had a bit of a trouble in installing the Switchgrade on my bike. Although the model I purchased was fully compatible with my dropper seatpost (Tranzx JD-YSP18) as per compatibility chart, once on top of it, the saddle, in the "neutral" position, couldn't be adjusted as desired (flat or with a slight tilt forward incidence), and it remained with an unacceptable 3+ degrees nose-up setting when the Switchgrade was fully tilted forward. I believe this had to do with the seat tube angle, which in my Trek Remedy is 68¬į geometrically (74¬į effective), so maybe not as steep as in the latest frames. To solve my issue, I slightly machined the top of the front-facing end of the seatpost clamp in order to give to the Switchgrade more tilting freedom in the forward direction and have the saddle leveled in the "neutral" position.
All in all good product, but I would recommend to include among the compatibility parameters a sort of allowable seat tube angle range to help customers avoiding to face this inconvenient.
