I never thought even the big Alligator Ilink adaptors would go right trough the top tube holes of the road bike :?
Any tricks or ready made parts that can adapt to these huge holes in my top tube, so I can use the Ilinks instead of normal housings ( going all the way through :x ) ?

Thanks for the help :beerchug: !!

Which road bike frame? I had a 2013 Ridley X-Night that did not have cable stops as it was designed for running full length gear and brake housing intended to help prolong cable life and reduce the possibility of moisture getting inside the cables from wet/muddy cyclocross races.
Michael - The Anaerobic Threshold is neither...

Norco Tactic SL 2015. I think Norco intended their bikes to run full lenght brake housings.
Problem is the housing is always moving forward in the top tube.
I also have the 2010 Norco CRR SL. The holes are just a little smaller, and the Ilink brake housing "ends" fit just fine.
