My bike is still running fine no issues yet with the battery connector (knock on wood). I have a 2" wide velcro strap strapped around it, hope it helps.

You might want to use an extra strap to secure the battery as preventive maintenance. They apparently made some quality and tolerance improvement on some bikes, but I would not risk it.

I have an RCS, the seat tube shim is so cheesy. The bike is a great bike though, so I put up with the smaller issues. I'me over 2K km in less than a year, I hope to make 2500km for 12 months even though it sat idle for many of the winter months. A lot depends on the weather now.
I'm not following the seat shim problem you're experiencing. My seat post doesn't have a shim. I did remove the handle and use an Allen wrench to tighten. Primarily to discourage theft of my expensive seat post.
