    Dropper post cable

    What should I do? I took my bike to a bike store to get my dropper installed, when I got my bike back the cable was all chewed up, my bike had some scratches (3 months all and I take very good care of it), I asked the store rep why my cable was like that, his answer was... cables get like that after we routing internally, and itís a poor quality cable; I saw the scratches when I got home. My dropper is a KS LEV CI Carbon Suspension Seatpost w/ Remote

    retail price is about $560; itís hard for me to think that with that price tag KS is going to use poor quality materials. Should I go back and make them fix the issues, should I bite the bullet and find another store? Thanks for the help

    They man handled that install. Yes marks and mares may happen, but thatís chewed to hell. This is why I DIY most things. I got no one to blame but myself. Plus Iím cheaper than shop rates.

    You could look for another shop, but there's no guarantee their work will be better.

    I'd give it a try yourself. Bike repair is extremely easy, which makes it even worse that so many shops do a bad job.

    Run away from that shop and google review it showing your results. Stick to the facts. They will get theirs.

    Yeah. Sometimes there're sharp edges on the routing holes in the frame which can scratch or nick the housing, but even with that, I have trouble seeing how they could have damaged the cable that badly. No shop I've ever dealt with would have thought that was even remotely acceptable.
    What, me worry?
