Seat goes up, seat goes down

The stock seat post on Blackbirb was disappointingly inanimate.

So I animated it.

I used a very basic non-remote dropper post, as I'd like to at some future point get a wireless remote dropper, and didn't feel like routing cables to the handlebars in the interim. So far it seems to work just fine.

There's things that change the seat height at the push of a button?!? I've only ever seen ones that require tools, or the push of a bottom (when things weren't quite tight enough). Fascinating!

Indeed there are. It helps to get the seat out of the way on rough terrain so it doesn’t get in the way of moving around on the bike.
