    Old thread, but I used it as a reference, so wanted to chime in my results.

    I used Problem Solver stick on cable guides for my external RS Reverb routing. The hose was cut for a previous bike, so routing along the rear brake cable wasn't an option. I'm happy with how it turned out.

    $11 for a pack of 5 stick-on cable guides (only needed three) was cheaper & easier than a new control hose.

    No pics as I'm away but cable tied to the brake hose like Muzzanic did then vertically up to the post (Thomson Elite Dropper). I found this looked the neatest route without resorting to sticky cable guides

    Yes but the fact that it may void warranty, Is why I wouldn't do it.

    Hi!

    I'm also thinking about installing a seat dropper on my JET9 RDO.
    As i'm not really fond about exterior cable installation, I would like to route the cables internally. Does someone know if you can install a RockShox reverb stealth and routing the cable through the headset hole? (I'm having one free because of XX1)

    Jet 9 RDO Dropper Seat cable routing?
    If it's like a RIP9RDO its not possible. The suspension pivot that's in the seat tube blocks any access to the bb area. I know from experienced as I tried hard to force a cable down the seat tube, but couldn't get past this suspension pivot.

    Now using a LEV & if you run no FD derailer, then you can run it half way internally than exit out he BB shell. The only problem is you need a good cable & housing, because of the length. A cheap cable & housing will be hard to push.

    I think w a RIP9 RDO the best you can do if you want to route through the extra headset hole would be to route to the downtube entry (for the front der cable that you dont have) and enter there. I contemplated it, but am not sure I have enough housing on my RS Reverb. And I'd have to take it apart to feed to housing through and then refill/bleed the hydraulics.

    That wouldnt get you entirely internal, you'd have a loop down from the seat to roughly the area of the front der.

    The Bottom Bracket area on the RIP 9 RDO is very different on the JET 9 RDO. So this probably wouldn't work. Plus the JET 9 RDO is BB30, and there's nearly zero clearance for the cable itself, let alone the housing. Something I will explore on my next tear down though. Doubt the cable could make sure a tight diameter turn if you could get it out of the BB shell.
