IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE INSTALLATION
Ensure that you have chosen the correct seatpost diameter for your bicycle frame. Do not use a seatpost reducer shim with this seatpost, this will void your warranty and could cause damage to your dropper post and/or your frame. If you have chosen an internally routed seatpost then you must ensure that the bicycle frame has internal dropper post routing. Do not attempt to modify your frame to allow internal routing, doing so may cause frame failure which could result in injury or death and could void your frame warranty. Please ensure you have the correct travel dropper post for your frame and seatpost extension combination, check lynecomponents.com for more info. Ensure that the seatpost is inserted past the minimum insertion line. Recommended seatpost clamp torque is 8-10Nm, do not exceed this torque.
Step 1. Measure the length of the cable outer housing from the dropper post (in its final position) to the selected position of the remote lever. Use sharp side cutters to cut the cable outer to length, make sure to cut only the outer cable and not the inner at this point. Leave enough cable at the handlebars to allow for a full 180° of movement without restriction. If you are using an external dropper post and the standard length suits your frame then please proceed to step 6.
Step 2. Thread the inner cable into the lever assembly. Ensure the hole in the lever puller pin is orientated correctly and the cable end is pulled into the recess in the lever puller pin, see the diagram below.
Step 3. Ensure the plastic end caps have been replaced on the outer cable then thread the inner cable into the outer cable.
Step 4 (internal version). Insert the inner cable through the cable end nut. Position the cable end nut 12-13mm away from the plastic cable end cap. Using a 2mm allen key tighten the cable end nut grub screw to clamp the inner cable. Use sharp side cutters or cable cutters to trim the remaining inner cable 1mm away from the cable end nut.
Step 4 (External version). Insert the inner cable through the cable end nut and the cable tensioner. Position the cable end nut 12-13mm away from the cable tensioner. Using a 2mm allen key tighten the cable end nut grub screw to clamp the inner cable. Use sharp side cutters or cable cutters to trim the remaining inner cable 1mm away from the cable end nut.
Step 5. Attach the cable end nut to the dropper post by sliding it in to the allocated slot on the dropper post. For internal dropper posts the cable outer simply fits in to the recess (see diagram). For external droppers the cable tensioner must be screwed in, and then tension in the cable must be adjusted. Ensure that there is around 1mm of play in the cable.
Step 6. Attach the remote lever to the handlebar, position this close enough to the handlebar grip that the riders thumb can press the lever. Once the lever is attached securely the cable tension must be adjusted. This can be done by using barrel adjuster. The cable should have 1-2mm of play and should not be under tension. If tension is too high the dropper post may actuate unintentionally.
Step 7. Cable tie your dropper post outer cable to the frame wherever necessary. Do not leave loose cables that could interfere with moving parts.
Step 8. Install the saddle. Internally routed post - loosen both clamp bolts until the gap between the plates becomes big enough to insert the saddle rails. Position the saddle correctly in the clamp and tighten the bolt, adjust the bolts independently to level the saddle. Externally routed post - loosen clamp bolt until the gap between the plates becomes big enough to insert the saddle rails. Adjust the saddle until it is level and positioned correctly and tighten the clamp bolt.
Do not ride the bike aggressively until you are sure that the dropper post has been properly installed and all bolts are securely fastened on the saddle clamp and the seatpost clamp.
