Hey all,

Do you know if i can run the rear brake hose through the front derailleur routing through the down tube to clean up the looks when running 1x10/1x11?
Additionally, any thoughts on the arc c? i just can't get enough of that turquoise!

Thanks

I don't see why not, but you'll have to disconnect the hose then re connect it, but if you're comfortable doing that then it should be fine!

You'll have to drill out the stops to pass the hydraulic line (rather than just a cable with no housing). The other thing is that you'll still have the riveted on hose guides along the down tube that are meant for the brake line... Otherwise it'd definitely be a clean look!
