    Stealth dropper Ripley

    I know it doesn't come from the factory ready for a stealth routed dropper post but is stealth routing something that anyone has successfully retrofitted? I'm really tempted to try it out bc I'm unsatisfied with the options of the posts that have the cable running outside of the frame. So, anyone, anyone?

    Drilling the frame above the eccentrics might not seem like a great idea to me, but let's hear about any attempts that have been made.

    Really doesnt sound like a good idea, especially with carbon...

    No huge love for internal routing here...

    ...I guess if I actually HAD a stealth post I'd be curious, but as a LEV and Reverb owner both now for as long as these posts have been out, I'd honestly never want to deal with internal routing.

    I've had to either ship back or service both LEV and my Reverb(s) so many times that the idea of f*cking with internal routing kind of terrifies me.

    Dropper posts are still finicky as shite IMO. Not against having the option on the frame, but for me I actually prefer being able to get at all my cables with ease.

    Ripley cable routing sucks,I am running mine all externally.
    internally routed cables done properly is amazing,I have it on my Nomad and you stop thinking about it after the first ride,its so good you just don't notice it,there is no annoying rattle and the bike looks clean.
    I just hope the new Ripley will address that issue.
