Has anyone here encountered an issue with the rear brake cable routing on the CAAD12 disc. I am running mechanical discs with compression less housing and can't get the housing to bend into the bb groove it's intended for (the housing is too stiff for the tight bend the routing requires).

Cheers

If it comes to it, you will just have to go with regular outer.

Been there done that with alloy Synapse which routes rear brake cable through hole in head tube. Bonkers.

I run hydro and had similar problems with mine only because i was running a kogal BB to convert to shimano cranks and the line was hitting on the sleeve.

in the end i araldite the hose to the frame to keep it out of the way and hold it down.
i got rid of the plastic bit that routes the cabling
