    Vertex 950 internal routing for dropper post?

    Just purchased a 2017 RM Vertex 950. Does anyone know if this bike has internal routing for a dropper post?

    If you run a 1x drivetrain you might be able to use the front derailleur internal cable routing for a dropper. It would likely need to be a Reverb with a hydraulic release as the routing through the BB would have some tight turns to get from the down tube to the seat tube.

    Its set up as a 2x10 right now. I guess ill have to externally route it if I decide to add one.

    I ran a internal cable dropper in the FD location. It was a pain around the BB but it worked. If you are running 2x you will have to strap it to your frame?

    Old thread, but TS manage to pull it together?! Looking for the same update.

    Isn't the hole in the downtube to narrow for a whole (outer) cable?
