How do I connect my dropper post cable?

Remove the actuator cover on the dropper post and fit the cable end into the recessed area, then put the cover back on.

Instead of the traditional 1.2mm cables used for shifters, the dropper cable measures just 0.8mm. Jagwire says this results in a more flexible cable which is superior for the tight bends often associated with internal cable routing as the dropper cables transition from the downtube to the seat tube.

Why is my dropper post not working?

If you press the lever of your dropper post and nothing happens (the post either stays up or down), then there is not enough tension on the cable. You’ll want to ADD tension. To do so, turn the barrel adjuster counterclockwise. Check the dropper post by pressing the lever.
