    Carbine 275 - Flip seatpost collar 180 degrees?

    My new dropper post has the cable exiting in the back. Now in the "normal position" as I have the post quite far stuck down, it means the cable will intefere/bend badly as the bolt of the seatpost collar forces it away.

    If I turn the collar 180 degrees it is perfectly fine. Now I just want to be sure there is no risk this puts extra stress on the frame? As far as I can see the seatpost tube is cut both front and back and the collar has a straight cut so no fancy offset cut. So flipping it shouldn be fine but just wanted to be sure

    Not a problem to go 180 degrees. You can run the collar forwards or backwards, just not to the side.
