    External Dropper Routing

    Hey Y'all,

    Long time no post, but have been a member for a while. Just got off of my ASR5c and picked up a Sb5c frame that I'm currently building up. One part I kept from the old bike is the dropper since it's pretty new and don't feel like buying a new one.

    My question is: If any of y'all have an external dropper, how have you routed the cable? I would like to run it down the seat tube and utilize that last cable routing anchor, but it's pointed slightly downward and might be too much of an angle. Has anyone done it that way? Pics would be a bonus as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    The 2016 and older SB5c has mounting points on the top tube for external routed dropper posts. It'll use the same mounting points as the cable for a front mech. If you want to run it all they way to the bottom then you'll just have to zip-tie it to the seat tube.

    You can see how mine was routed ... go look in the SB5c build thread on one of the last pages and you'll see my bike. It's the same picture as my avatar. I say was because I've since moved to an internal post and moved the external one back to my ASR5c.

    Personally, I'd sell the external and get an internal, but that's just me.
