Hi all,

Looking for help with a link to the disassembly of the Ascend Brand X Dropper post – with external cable actuator –

I’ve seen countless videos and text descriptions of the internally routed cable actuator model disassembly – but none explaining the disassembly of the (externally) actuated model…

The external actuator, in it’s default 10-oclook position, is rubbing against my thigh as I pedal – which is maddening – and Chain Reaction refuses to allow me to return the post for a swap to a different model, despite the fact that the unit is brand new, with under 10 minutes of use on it…


So, if anyone can point me in the direction of a link that shows or describes disassembly, that would be cool. I’ve heard rumor online that one can disassemble the unit, rotate the actuator until it sits at the four O’clock position, and then install it – creating a better situation for leg-rub.

Appreciate your time.
