    Dropper Post Cable Rubbing on Covert

    Been running the reverb on my covert and have not found a good way to prevent the cable from rubbing the rear wheel

    Anyone have any suggestions or pics of how they solved the problem

    If your Reverb cable is still full length...

    Run it down the length of the seat tube and inbetween the seat tube and the seatstays, loop it up to the left side of the downtube and zip tie it (for a total of 3 cables) in each of the frame's double cable stop locations. Works best for right side remotes, but will work for the left side remote too. If you do run the left side remote you might want to cross it over underneath the rocker and use the cable stops on the driveside.

    This is an example of the general routing I am talking about with the cross over to the driveside. Picture the same thing on a Covert. This works great....



    If your line is too short for that, a popular option is the spiral so the cable acts like a spring as the post goes up and down, for that you would use the actual stops on the top tube.
