How-To: Internal Routing with Art's Cyclery 4

As sleek and svelte as carbon frames are, there are still those unsightly housing runs cluttering up the bike's profile. Apparently someone of great importance decided that cable and brake housing was embarrassing and should be hidden away, convenience be damned. Thus ushered in the era of internally routed frames, the bane of mechanics everywhere. Hopefully someday frame designers will return to their senses to bring cable stops back to the outside of our frames. Until that day comes, let Art's Cyclery present a few techniques to help making running cable and brake housing through internally routed frames a bit easier.

    Also companies like shimano are starting to use zinc cables which allows using a magnet to draw through the frame much easier.

    I hope videos and how-to's like this reveal the absurdity of internal cable routing and convince product departments the world over to stop subjecting us to this crap.
