Really hoping someone in this forum might be able to help me with some puzzling cable routing.
I am currently building up a Look 695 (with dura ace 9000), and now looking to fit the internally routed rear derraillear cable.
Frame came with thin cable tubing in downtube, which comes out the bottem with spare 10-15cm of cable. There is then a seperate cable tube in chainstay, again with spare 10-15cm of length - and these two lengths are just taped together.
What I do not understand, is why its not just one tube for the whole length?
Not at all clear how I should be joining these tubes together!
I checked online and I can see that the way I have received my bike is per the norm - if you look at the pedal picture in below link you can clearly see the two tubes masking taped together:
Many thanks for any help! Best Tom
If the tube was one piece, it could have a detrimental effect on shifting when the cable is under load.
In two pieces they are secured at either end and are able to move when the inner cable moves.
Image below shows what it currently looks like:
Thanks again for your help!
The "join" in the above looks like it's in the chainstay which would make sense.

Wait (different timezones etc) for more knowledgeable people to respond before cutting!

And voila! I did this trick to our teambikes.
The bike shop I bought it from originally forgot to include the chainring bolts for the Zed 2 crank, I chased this and yesterday I received them but they are Rotor bolts with the Look spacers, rather than Look bolts. I don’t care for the principle, but practically, the female bolts barely petrude beyond the inner chainring. Whilst they screw together fine, and I’ve done them reasonably tight, I am nevertheless a bit concerned as to their strength like this. However, perhaps they are same length bolts as the Look ones anyway – anyone know?!
They are reasonably flush against the spider, concern is the female bolt barely petrudes beyond the inner chainring when mounted - so male is certainly not screwed all the way in. Is this normal? if not any recommendations on good alternatives? thanks Tom

* sorry for the edit, to address the second point, you really need the proper length bolts, more engagement = better. I've been looking for a good steel alternative but no joy so far....

Read that someone was using them on Praxis chainrings though. I've dropped an email to Praxis to ask their recommendations and will post here if they come back with anything. Best, Tom
