sorry but I had to post it, this thing is awesome. That is the fork you should go for!

Unfortunately I could not find a single internal routing dropper post example. You should try and route it down the seat tube, over the bb housing and up the down tube.

Looks like you should be able to route it under the bottom bracket housing, yes?
Yes sir but It seem like its going to be a bitch to fish it out at the other end.
The space is pretty tight and I was able to start it going down the seat tube but couldn't do it going up

What is the difference? Pull it through with the what is fished through. ??

I saw a video of someone using thread and a vacuum to get a leader through to the hole. He tied the thread to the end of the housing and pushed / pulled it all the way through.

The hole is smaller at the down tube end

Last time I messed up on my defunct Trance, magnet did the trick. But I think this RDO is a lot easier to work with especially with that opening at the bottom.

I don't see it, it looks to me there's more space above the BB housing than under, and the turn would be less sharp ad possibly easier to manage. Vacuum is one possibility, or you can use a thin piece of iron connected to a thin string, then use a magnet to pull it through the tubing. I think the Park Tool routing system works like that.
