Hey,
Am I right in thinking the rear brake cable runs a full length outer inside the top tube?
If so, do the Aicans fit OK without ant drama?

You running electric shifting?

Brakes are no drama.. Use the noodle and oring the front and rear of the frame exits.
Aicans for shifting are a lot harder ;)

Full aican is tough. The frame grommet is a little flawed.. I'm trying to get another one.. Which I'm gona slot and then wrap with tape to try and stop it pulling back into the frame. They should be of harder rubber and have a proper lip at the front because they pull back into the frame. And once the housing starts heading into the Frame then rattling occurs
The frame bung is not well designed. I have a friend who's a 3d modelling gun. When he's gets back from Europe I'm going to get him to draw up one that works properly ;)

Ah, thanks for the info.
Update the tread if/when you get the new piece made, I'd be interested to see how I'd works

Ohh and I think the Parlee clamps are too flexy. Heaps of people have front shifting drama with them. So I use a proper clamp. Some things are worth the extra grams


I agree with you. I used to have the parlee clamp and now have a super record clamp on derailleur and its so much better with the shifting.

Your bike is awsome :beerchug:

Yes, the parlee clamps are garbage. Anyone using one is compromising. I have had customers bring them in for install on their new frames and all but the most serious WW's I have swayed to use a metal one

Simply stunning. Sincerely enjoyed watching this build. Jealous.

What happened to your other Parlee?

Madcow has it for a special project.
It had a small crack in one of the brake bosses and Parlee did me a deal on the SLi :D
