    Scott scale 920 dropper post install

    Hey guys,

    Bought the Brand X ascend dropper post with internal routing for my scott scale 920 (carbon xc bike)

    It has internal routing on the bike, i have no problem guiding the housing through the downtube until i reach the bb.
    There it seems i have to get it over the bb up in the seatpost but i can't for the life of me get it through.

    Anyone has any experience with dropper post install on the scale series?
    Any tips?

    I don't feel like buying the parktool internal routing kit as it costs about half the price of the total dropper post price... so any suggestions would be appreciated

    thanks

    I've used the Park kit it situations like that: Put one cable with a magnet down the down-tube and a cable with mating magnet down the seat post to fish it up the seat post. I've also taken the BB out to access the cable. This has the advantage of seeing how the cable is going past and clearing the BB.

    You could rig up something like the Park kit with cylindrical magnets that'll fit through the cable ports.
    What, me worry?

    That park kit indeed looks super easy... but it's quite pricey in my opinion...
    Anyway after a long struggle i managed to work it in.
    i crammed some teeth floss wire in the downtube and used my dyson on the seat tube, it sucked it right through. Then taped the floss wire to the outer housing and fished it throug slowly.

    It's in now and it's never coming out!

    Nice. When it comes time to replace the housing in the future, it'll be easy to replace by using it guide the new housing though the frame and around the bb.
    What, me worry?
