How to drill a frame?
#21
Thanks for your reply lee always value your opinion buddy , have decide this to be a bad idea and quite liking the idea of a cable free option instead, would work well as a spare to chuck in van for trips away as it would be super quick to fit on another bike, luckily their all the same seat post diameter.

Ok so I chickened out of drilling the frame. The more I thought and talked to people, it just seemed a bad idea.
So here is the solution. Magura electronic dropper post. Set up and fitting was the easiest of any post Dropper post Iv ever fitted. One ride in and it works really well, only down so far is a tinny bit of play that you do seem to get in a lot of posts, but does make it rattle a little when your out the saddle riding through ruffer stuff. You don't feel any play when sitting on it though. So thumbs up so far hopefully it will hold up well in a the long term.

That's a very clean & simple solution mate, good call Smile
I take it you'll put some protection under it to stop mud n water ingress, even though it's clearly waterproof?

Nope, I feel what they've done should be good enough. Although shouldn't be getting to wet now, feels like we're on the right side of winter.

Got stealth on the other bike, but this will make a good spare. especially to be able to take it away on trips in the spares box.
