Compatibility with Frame Design: Some bike frames, especially older or non-specifically designed models, may lack internal cable routing options. In such cases, an external cable routing system provides a viable solution, allowing riders to enjoy the benefits of a dropper seat post without needing to modify or replace their frame.
Ease of Installation and Maintenance: External cable routing is generally simpler and easier to install compared to internal routing. Additionally, troubleshooting and cable replacements are typically more straightforward with external routing.
Accessibility for Maintenance: With an external cable routing system, the dropper seat post cable is easily accessible for maintenance and adjustments. Riders can quickly inspect, lubricate, or replace the cable if needed, without having to dismantle or disassemble parts of the frame.
Reduced Internal Interference: External cable routing minimizes the risk of potential conflicts with other internal components, such as suspension systems, pivot points, or frame structures. This ensures smooth cable operation and minimizes the chance of unwanted cable contact or friction.
