It's probably the most simple internal cable routed frame to work with. Once the cables feed thru the faceplate, there's a direct guide all the way to the exit.
Wonder if this true for the disc-brake Defy... I asked at the shop and they believe the noodle guides are only at the BB, leaving cable inners loose between the frame stops and would require full bottom bracket removal to do any cable work.
I really want to shorten my somewhat noodley cable runs...
When changing the chainset on my Defy I found Giant hadn't installed the bottom bracket sleeve. Odd I think as I had to be careful not snag the Di2 cables. It is true they hang loose in the frame and the junction box which explains the rattle! I had to rethread the rear cable and it was okay. I made sure everything is up in the downtube away from the cranks with some electrical tape.
