Needless to say I was intrigued with the idea of having a dropper post without the excess cable that sags when the seat is low. I thought it would work, but someone suggested that it would be mushed and crimped in the suspension link and it made me rethink buying a $350 seatpost.
Well I found one for 200 bones on fleabay and couldn't pass it up...
Yes I know, its dirty..
The cable has more than enough bend to make the corner, its pretty loose where it sits, and that is full bottom out.
Routing was as I planned after clearing the lower link. Clearance is minimal, but sufficient.
Shabam! No dangly hose!
Only thing I see being an issue here is the hose rattling against the seat tube where it exits. I have an idea to dremmel out a little notch for the cable on the very bottom of the seat tube, doubt it would do anything negative right there.
Looks good though! Im pleased, I need to shorten the hose and give it a bleed, but otherwise it looks good to go. I'll get a ride report after this weekend
The post is a 380mm post, 125mm travel, left hand remote.
