Another option would probably have been to use a flexible piece of plastic, like the ones FSA supply to fish the cable out of the handlebars. You insert this, so that it sits against the inside of the tube, all the way around, you then insert the outside cable, and as soon as it is by the hole, you pull the bit of plastic to guide it through. Also fiddly, but not more than a 5 minute job every time.
I really like the build- the clean carbon looks really work. And 7.2 is a very good weight! You could shave off maybe another kilo, but you really need to be in great physical shape to be able to use that difference. And it is far cheaper to lose a kilo of bodyweight instead!!!
How much did you pay for the whole thing? I really like the wheels as well, but hqave always had a dislike for tubs, so am currently considering Zipp 404 or 303 clinchers. Due to their price though, I am looking around at similar offerings, so if you have a link re these wheels it would be appreciated!
Happy riding!
