New Dropper Won't Fit :(
grind the seat post clamp to allow the black bit to fit- possibly leave it to thin to work
Grind the lip of the seat post clamp and install lower – possibly not grip the post thougj
Somehow space out the black box on the post to fit over the clamp- need to take it apart though
Drill a hole 3 cm in the post so it will sit at the right height for you- does it not have a 1 ” drop like a GD? whch was prone to break when ridden like this IIRC
Not sure which is the safest or easiest though
I would try grinding the lip of a [cheap crappy non QR] seat clamp first thoughPosted 4 years agomattrgeeMember
So I treated myself to one of the Tmars droppers for my Genesis Core. However, with me being tall and the frame being a large, I don’t have a great deal of normal seat post showing, about 21cm to be exact.
Anyway, I can’t get the dropper low enough in the seat tube. Where it stops means the saddle being about 3cm too high, which is quite a difference.
Any bright ideas? I know you can get some really thin carbon seat clamps, but there’s only just enough room for the seat tube to fit.

I’d a similar problem with mine but only needed 1 cm so ground the lip off the seat clamp and fitted it further down the seat tube.
I wouldn’t normally advocate altering a frame but it looks like there’s plenty of seat tube above the top tube. If the frame’s out of warranty, cutting down the seat tube would be the easiestPosted 4 years ago
