    • Start by identifying your lever: generation 1 or generation 2.

    • Gen 1 lever is pictured on the left. Gen 2 lever is pictured on the right.

    • If you have a generation 1 lever use steps 2-7.

    • If you have a generation 2 lever use steps 8-12.

  2. At this point you should already have your seatpost installed in your frame and the housing length sorted. Haven't done that yet? See here

    • Open the rubber access plug on the top of the lever revealing the T25 Torx cable fixing screw

    • Loosen the screw by turning it counter clockwise

    • Slide the cable into the lever

    • Be sure the cable passes through the hole in the small aluminum block

    • Pull cable through until it is tight

    • Slide the cable into the clamp

    • While pulling the cable tight, snug the clamp screw using a T25 Torx

    • If using new housing it is recommend to actuate the lever a few times to seat the housing ferrules onto the housing. After doing so, adjust the cable tension again.

    • Check the function of the lever and post, adjust cable tension as needed using the barrel adjuster

    • Tighten cable fixing screw to 3N*m

    • Using cable cutters, trim the cable

    • You can trim it close to the clamp or bend it down slightly and install a cable end close to the clamp (we removed the lever for a better view)

    • With the lever installed on the bike, adjust the paddle position to your preference and tighten the screw to 1N*m

    • You can also move the lever between the two mounting positions

    • Do a final check on the post function, seatpost clamp torque and lever clamp torque

    • At this point you should already have your seatpost installed in your frame and the housing length sorted. Haven't done that yet? See here

    • Loosen the 2mm cover screw and remove the cover screw and cover

    • Slide the cable into the lever

    • While pulling the cable tight, snug the T25 Torx until it bottoms in the hole. DO NOT EXCEED 1Nm

    • The unique cable-clamp design does not benefit from over-tightening.. so don't do it!

    • If using new housing it is recommend to actuate the lever a few times to seat the housing ferrules onto the housing. After doing so, adjust the cable tension again.

    • Check the function of the lever and post, adjust cable tension as needed using the barrel adjuster

    • Make sure you have about 15mm of cable exposed from the T25 cable fixing bolt

    • Using cable cutters, trim the cable.

    • Install the cable crimp and bend the cable slightly so it is tucked into the cable groove

    • Re-install the lever cover and tighten cover fixing screw to 1Nm

    • Install the paddle lever and install the fixing bolt

    • With the lever installed on the bike, adjust the paddle position to your preference and tighten the screw to 1N*m

    • You can also move the lever between the two mounting positions

    • Do a final check on the post function, seatpost clamp torque and lever clamp torque
