    cable clamp for a ks i950 dropper post

    I have a ks i950 dropper post. The cable zip ties to the frame and that is fine. However the cable housing is always coming out of place where the cable attaches to the post. The wires in the housing are starting to get bent so the housing is getting harder and harder to insert into position. This happens because all the slack comes out of the housing as the bars turn and then when I raise the seat, the housing comes out of the insertion point. I was wondering if anyone had a cable clamp solution that would hold the housing in place against the frame to keep a constant length of the housing available for the seat post to go up and down and enough for the bars to turn.

    Looking at the thompson it looks like they have something that holds the cable in place on the bottom part of the dropper housing.

    My i950 has the cable housing with cable housing end caps, then where the cap goes into the post there is a small set screw that holds it in place. Sounds to me like you do not have it setup properly.

    I agree. Something isn't right.

    He's talking about this set screw.

    Ok I looked at pictures with both. The cables housing is coming out of the black end cap that fits into the lever as the seat goes up the housing doesn't follow smoothly
