Hello, I have a bike with white brakecables and i want to install di2 but those cables are black. I don't want to put black brakecables on my bike because the white one matches good with it.

How can I route the cable of di2 best?

There is no white E-Tube wires if that what you're asking.

Zip tie to the rear brake cable then enter through the front shifter hole. The cables are so thin you won't really notice them anyway.

Which way i have to run the black cable to have a nice,clean look?

Maybe someone can post a picture of his bike with white brakecables and black E-tube cables or do i have to take black brakecables?

Get some white shrink wrap. I shrink wrapped to the brake housing and that lends to a nice clean build.

I hope you are planning to get a new crankset as well. Di2 won't work with a triple.

huh... you mean Standard, mid compact or compact.

since you have a triple..I'm thinking compact ... I like the white shrink wrap idea someone mentioned already.

Marine Vinyl Restoration Coating, Sea Ray Mystic White, 12 oz. Aerosol
or maybe
Duplicolor HVP105 - Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric Coating High Gloss White
it could even be
Rust-Oleum Fabric & Vinyl Gloss White.

The last image has the most detail and it looks to be a painted on coating, easy to do if you take your time and spray very light coats on the original cables.

I used some coloured heat shrink wrap on a friend's build a few years ago when I couldn't locate purple housing. In fact it was someone from this forum that suggested it - thanks! Depending on what colour my next build ends up being, I may be using this on the black e-tube wires.
