Nice! Can we get some pictures of how the cable routing works with mechanical when you build it?

I will try to get some pictures taken af the cabling when i start building. Right now I am waiting for the Parlee UT cups, last i heard was 10 of March :(

Parlee did send me some temporary cups (used campy ones I think), but not sure I want to mount and then remove them again.

Nice. :thumbup:

But I have to ask: The chainstays just behind the BB looks so tiny. So is the bike very stiff ?

Short update on cabling. It wasn't exactly a smooth experience. Mainly due to there being some sort of blocking deep inside the chain-stay, simply couldn't get the housing past. Had to get a 30 cm long drill to clear the path.

Decided to use powercordz housing, but had to order an extra shifter housing to be sure to have enough.
At least its extremely light, so the extra housing does not matter that much :)

Housing runs like this (freehand!)

Cables comming out of head-tube (grommets to seal around housing haven't been added yet)

Cables inside head-tube

Brake cable (nothing special here :))

RD in chain-stay

Internal cable stop for FD housing with ferrule

Finally, Parlee's with internal cabling, nice.
I like the frame, the only thing has always made me uneasy about this frames are the super thin chainstays.

Thanks a lot of that! Is there any likelihood that the cables could knock/slap inside the frame?

The frameset included some foam sleeves to put around the housing.
How effective they are, only time will tell.

Doesn't adding 100g of cable outer defeat the point of spending $$$ to save a few grams on the fork and elsewhere?
Nuts.
