    Dropper post on Motobecane 29r fs?

    Looking at getting the frame and fork kit and building it up as a 1x10 with a dropper post. Anybody out there running it with a dropper post? I don't see nor do I see listed anywhere that it has any accommodation for the cables.

    Since I wont have a front derailleur I'm thinking worst case I could use those cable points and run it up to the post rather than down to the top pull derailleur mount point. It's hard to tell from the pic if there are three or two cable points just in front of the seat post. I'm pretty sure there are three since it looks like on the built out version there is the cables for the rear shifter, rear brake, and front shifter.

    Any thoughts, ideas, or advice?

    I have a Rockshox dropper on mine, I ziptied the hose to the top tube cables. For the trails I ride a dropper is a safety item, without one, expect to go over the bars regularly.
