I bought a 2014 Evo Nano frameset and it came with a long piece of housing inner for the rear brake.

It's one piece and it's made of a waxy braided material, it's not Teflon coated plastic that I'm used it.

How do I build the rear brake using it:

- Does it go inside the housing? There's no way it'll fit unless I extract the plastic housing - what a faff...
- Can I use regular spiral metal, plastic coated Shimano housing or do I need to use Nokian (whatever it's called) sectioned housing?

Any direct experience will be very helpful.

thanks in advance!

That's just to help you install your inner cable on an internally routed frame. You take it off after you get the inner cable through. You can use any housing that you'd like.

I would save this piece for when you inevitably change cables.

So to be clear.

Thread the inner cable through the plastic sleeve, then remove the sleeve and then slide your outer over the now internal inner cable.

Keep the plastic and then remember when you recable the bike to leave the inner in place to use to guide the plastic sleeve.

I just got a 2014 team frame set and am in the process of assembling. So far everything is straightforward, got a Praxis conversion kit for BB, cut steerer, fitted stem and comp. plug, installed post, bars and saddle, installed brake calipers (needed short center nut for front brake). The rest should be a breeze as long as dropouts are well aligned.
