Does anyone know if the routing on the CAAD10 or CAAD12 disc is suitable for mechanical discs?

I'm on a budget so this would let me keep my current group for a while longer.
Would be looking at TRP Spyre SLC or Hy/Rd.

Took a CAAD12 Disc for a quick test ride at the weekend and was impressed.

Thanks for your help.

Agree with quadlt250. Modern disc brake bikes are all design to run full length brake housing, and that can be either mechanical housing, or hydraulic hose.

One thing to keep in mind, you may already know this. If you plan on running mechanical cable for the rear, you will want to use compressionless cable housing to maximize brake performance.

Yokozuna Reaction is what I used, and it worked GREAT! However Yokozuna Reaction's housing is slightly larger (outer diameter). There are other compressoinless housing on the market though.

The OP is right to do his homework.

My Synapse mechanical disc came with interrupted cable through the head and top tube. To fit hydraulic I have had to drill through the cable stop in the head tube, or else the hose would not go through. Many Cannondales feed cable/hose through a hole in the head tube. I know - bonkers.

However, I don't know the deal with all the CAAD10s and 12s. The ones with mechanical discs may well be interrupted to the rear, while hydraulic will, of course, be continuous.
