Just got my 2022 Cervelo R5 frameset, and preparing to swap my SRAM Red AXS from my C3 frame to the R5
I see there is some kind of liner starting in the chainstay, and assume I should run the hydraulic hose inside it.
I was hoping to be able to keep myt hydrualic hoses intact, but it looks like I'd have to cut off the shifter end with the olive on it to run it through...
Does anyone have experience building one of these up, and have any tips/tricks?

Thanks!

Yes - you will need to cut the lines at the levers, and install a new olive at the lever end and re-bleed the lines. Not sure why they ship them connected.

Route the hoses from the caliper end through the frame and once the rear caliper brake hose line is through the head tube, sleeve the foam hose over the brake line and push the foam hose sleeve back into the frame.

thanks! i ended up having to get an extra length of the foam sleeve to stop cable rattle, so was able to "practice" replacing the ends, and bleeding a few times.
