    I must admit I am a bit puzzled. Why choose an internal routed seatpost if it is to leave half of the housing outside of the frame ?

    Client request on this one: Internal seat tube route with cable up non-drive side. Which is exactly how I'd do it for someone who requested an internally routed dropper for these two reasons:

    1. I'm a bit hesitant to do an internal route inside the down tube which would mean more holes in a critical tube. The weight gain on a down tube internal route is also in question.

    2. Practically speaking, most want the seat post itself clean of any cables.

    However maintenance wise, the work to get the cable routed inside just the seat tube is a royal pain (my opinion). Every time I do one, I realize why my personal Marauder sports one externally routed. It's a greasy mess.

    All of these bikes looks pretty sweet though I think...

    Thanks Kristopher. I'm pretty much in the keep it simple, keep it external camp but understand some people don't like the aesthetics.

    The aesthetic side of me likes the look of an internal dropper (one up and through the bottom bracket and out the head tube) but the practical side of me hates the "what if I have to pull the dropper" scenario. Having built a handful of them just inside the seat tube, like I said earlier, I keep my own external. The swap from SS and putting gears + adding a dropper on my bike took little time in the shop. I like working on bikes but certain tasks I avoid for my own bikes.

    I don't know how the internals work on the Thomson droppers, but I do like that Fox's external version is a simple mechanism that stops right at the collar so you do not have a cable that moves with the head of the post. Thomson's are incredibly reliable though and that is what everyone recommended when I was looking at one for myself.

    Current set up:



    Nice upgrade in the Wolftooth ReMote Light (yes... I had to get one of the Stealth ones before they sold out!):



    So far so good with Thomson. Really pleased:

    Not even close - gumwall.

    Gum wall but I still like the look of 80s/90s mountain bikes.

    The sidewall dilemma only concerns the living room queens. Once properly used and dirty/sandy/muddy they both look the same imo. Nice bike.
