    Hello,

    What is the proper technic to install the internally routed dropper seat post cable and housing on a 2013 Trance? The original cable and housing has been removed and now I would like reinstall it.

    Thank You,

    Just went through this problem in the last couple of days.

    The solution for me was to seal up the frame with electrical tape and use a vacuum to suck string down the seat tube and out the cable hole near the bottom bracket. I then tied and taped on an outer cable to the string (with a greased end bent 1 cm in at about 70 degrees). Pulled the string to get it in to the correct corner position and then making sure the bend was facing the right way, pushed it down from the top through the corner and up to the exit point where I used a wire hook to pull it out.

    Ok, just installed the Giant Contact Switch. I simply (not so simple) kept jamming the housing through the frame until it popped up the seat tube. Worked best when running the housing down the downtube then up the seat tube.


    You could also run a derailleur cable up the seat tube from the plug below the BBs, then run the other half up the downtube. Then push some housing through it.

    That worked on an 2014 Anthem
