    Giant anthem 2 29er 2018 dropper

    Seriously considering one of theses but what are my options on a future dropper. Are externally routed the only option, would be a shame to ruin the lines with cable ties... just want to make sure I'm future proofed as I'll not have money to buy another bike for many years

    I wasn't sure internally routed cables were possible? And if there was room? Any advice would be appreciated

    plenty to choose from, however the travel is usually limited to 100mm

    It seems like the frame accepts an internally routed dropper. The 27.2 seat post diameter that is the limiting factor.

    100mm would probably be ok tbf, would be rare to drop it but nice to have in extreme cases. As you can imagine the seat is quite high for XC so 100mm will get the seat out the way just enough

    how can you tell? I'm struggling to see anything that talks or shows possibilities for an internal dropper. Think it's the only thing stopping me pulling the trigger

    I run the PNW 27.2 dropper on my Anthem Advanced Pro 29'er. With internal routing and the bike is so much funner with the dropper. Worth the extra weight.

    27.2 Lev works too. Internal routing is a non issue.
