HI...I'm in the process of designing a new steel build, and focussing on clean lines and hidden cabling, particulalry the front fork (which will be probably carbon)

The (very) new Look 695 fork http://www.bikeradar.com/road/gallery/a ... s-37791/6/ is something of a marvel in this regard - though not sure how availability or price of such a piece will render it unfeasable for this project.

Are there any alternatives?

I'm aware of a few (Boardman Aero TT, THM Scapula, etc) where the front brake is integrated, though as a sidepull (whereas I want the cable to go down the steerer)

Thoughts?

Rob English at English cycles does integrated brakes in steel. But I doubt it's cheaper than mass produced carbon.

A reasonable Aero option I think is a Tririg non-integrated brake and your choice of fork, e.g. Cervelo or 3T.
