Hi all,
I need some advice, I’m using Di2 internal cable routing for my bike.
While riding an uneven road and etc…. I can hear cable or cable tie noise from my bike.
Any method I can solve this noise issue..???

One trick is to use small zip ties around the cable so the long end/tail will stick out, put a few of those like every 4-6" or so along the cable. Then feed it into the tube. You can put a few close to one another also, like on opposite sides so the cable is either suspended/lodged between the tube walls while inside of it, or just one side and hope there is enough force to keep it against the tube so it won't make noise.

I basically did that, haven't had any noises/rattling.

There are also specific designed ones you can buy. But the small ones are good too from your local hardware store.

^ That's the best thing to do. I might also add that it's probably just the downtube wire so if you don't want to pull all the wires on the bike maybe start with that one and see if the sound disappears.

Could be the internal jb. Wrap it in foam.
