    I put a BikeYoke Revive 160mm dropper in my 2017 9.6, size medium, and used a cork borer to make a clean hole in the plastic plug in the down tube. Cork borers take more time to make holes in rubber or plastic than drill bits, but I find that the results are worth the effort. Here's a pic. (Yes, she needs a wash....)

    2018 Trek Farley carbon frame set 17.5" - 2.55 kg/5.63 lbs. 2019 Trek Farley carbon frame set 17.5˝ - 2.31 kg / 5.1 lbs. What is the differences in the frames?

    (that now come stock with the same dropper).

    The dropper cable routing is different on the carbon frames, hence why I was referring to the 9.6 and 9.8 frames.

In my little bag of extras that came with the bike, there was no cover for this area to surround the cable. Its the little black plastic cover that is glued on with shitty glue that doesn't re-stick at all.
    Anyone add a internal dropper?
    Just picked up the same bike and was wondering about cable routing myself. Sounds like you added a post with an external lever? Otherwise, I think that port on the downtube is where the cable enters the frame, not exits.

    I'll ask my Trek dealer about a port cover with hole next time I'm there.

    For anyone who has installed an internal dropper - did you have to remove the BB to thread the cable?

    I just had a Crankbrothers 160 mm dropperd installed on my Farley 9.6 and the mechanic said he didn't have to pull the crank, he initially thought he would have to.

    Not sure what youíre showing us there - if you have an internal dropper post can you explain or show how cable is routed and what you did with port cover on down tube? maybe I need to look at my bike more closely?

    Exactly, that picture is showing the rear derailer cable, not the dropper post.

    I routed the cable to a BikeYoke Revive dropper on my 2017 Farley 9.6 as shown in Trek's "MTB Frame Diagram & Technical Information" document for the 2016 Farley:
    .2016 Trek Farley 5, 7, 9, 9.6, and 9.8 Fat Bikes-capture.jpg


    I used Park Tool's IR-1.2 Internal Cable Routing Kit, and didn't need to remove my bottom bracket. Without this tool, installing the internally routed dropper would have been much tougher.

    i am curious about this also. full build for a 2019 9.6 is said to be 28.1. i have a 2017 9.6 setup tubeless and it is 29.1. i would think even if the 2017 was a little heavier after setting it up tubeless it would be lighter than 28.1

    thats a number i would be happy with. i got the bike used but it is all stock except for bars and stem. already setup tubeless. i can see being off a little but that seems like alot. i am going to have to check the bike out and see how he did the tubeless conversion, thats the only place i can see the weight hiding.

    do you have a bike scale that measures grams? curious what you whole complete front wheel setup weighs. would be super quick to do and would let know if something weird is going on with the wheels. i will try to do mine in the a.m.

    What method did you use to go tubeless? I kept the oem rim strips, and used mulefit rim tape. You saved a lot of weight, I may have to weigh mine now and see how much weight I lost.

    Took out the original rim strips and replaced with grosgrain ribbon (it needed some pizazz), and then mulefut tape.

    No, I don't have such a scale. Just a digital bathroom scale with me, or me + bike.

    I went from the Barbegazi and tubes to studded Gnarwhal's tubless and gained a 100g per wheel on the Wampa rims.

    this is the weights i am up with along with a shot of my actual bike. tube is just about a pound. .97 to be exact. i did weigh the flat pedals that are on it now which i won't be using. those weigh 270 a piece. The actual pedals i will be using are just shiman 540's which weigh 180 a piece. that is about a .4 lbs for the pair which is a start. only other item that may be really heavy are the handlebars.

    the wheel weight you see is the whole everything except for the axle. which includes whatever the previous owner used to go tubeless.

    Does Trek offer a fork with mounting bosses? It looks like the Haru fork does not have any mounting options for anything cages?

    That's the biggest deal breaker for me. I like the Farley but I need the storage on the fork for winter ultras.

    I am going to a 28t oval OneUp switch and believe the standard with 6mm offset is best. It may not be the prescribed spec, but would bias the chain line toward the inner bigger cogs. Iím in the middle or inner cogs most of the time anyway.

    At 28t chainstay clearance should not be an issue, but maybe tire clearance will? I have a 27.5 4.5 Gnarwal.

    Current crankset is Next Cinch with a 28. I have at least 1/4Ē clearance to the tire and chainstay, so donít expect any issues. Am I correct? Anything Iím missing?
