    Trek Dropper Post Problems

    Hi. So I have just picked up a new Trek Remedy 7 and I'm having a problem with the dropper post. When I hop on the saddle in drops down. It's not locking at the bottom or top. Bike shop can't look at the problem until the new year. I really want to take it out tomorrow for a spin.

    Any suggestions as to wants causing this and how to fix it?

    Thanks

    Sounds like to much cable tension. Check the cable and housing to make sure everything is seated. If it is, try decreasing the cable tension. If this doesn't work then it is a problem with the post itself.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Thanks for the feedback Travis. All the cables and housing are good. This particular post is adjusted at the lever. I think it's busted.

    Unscrew the pinch bolt in the lever that holds the cable, then try.
