sorry - some brain fade in the post above....clearly there must be some other holes near the shifters right (as i can see your brake cables routing out of the holes near the stem also)? still curious about the wireless box however...

Yes thre is holes at the lever, wireless can go in the bar end upstream of the bar end unit, personal preference.

thanks

are there any holes in the bar other than the ones you have pictured near the stem? if not, I understand that would mean having to route the cable from the bar end all the way around the drops and up to the holes in picture right - was that a breeze? finally, why have you kept the wireless unit outside of the bars? my plan is to certainly have this inside the bars, just in line and 'upstream' from the bar end junction, was there not enough room for you to do that, or was it your preference to have the wireless unit outside of the bars for some other reason?

thanks

You’ve got the holes pictured, holes at the hoods and of course the bar ends.

On the unblocked bars, feeding the cables through was easy enough.

Regarding the wireless unit, I think at the time I recall reading that shimano don’t recommend it inside the bike. However I’ve got it in the seat tube of the Venge and it works fine.

It did/does bug me as it looks a bit clunky. I think I will take steps to change it and put it in the bar ends. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be able to fit, but it could be tight.

Cheers mate. They're awesome looking bars and comfy as hell by all accounts. I'm just checking with the retailer to confirm the ones I want are indeed 'unblocked' as they say the bars are the 2019 version and I know there have been previous iterations that weren't unblocked.

Thanks again.

There are two more holes, one by each shifter. The wire from the bar-end juction box can be routed, internally, through the drop.

I recommend getting the Park Tool IR-1.2...it will make your life much less stessful.

Hello,

I already bought and installed the 3T Superergo but the team version. It matches my bike really well and found it at a good price. Replaced all inner cables/housings and, although it took some time to route, everything is now working with mechanical/rim DURA-ACE 9000.
I tested it without tape to some adjustments and, without a doubt, it's very very comfortable handlebar!

Can the internal cable routing of the 3T Superergos take both a mechanical shift cable and a hydraulic brake line?

The Superergos can fit mech shift and hydraulic brake lines (shimano). I ran the hydraulic line first which was easy enough since it is quite flexible. Unforunately my shifter housing was super stiff and even using the shift cable to help guide it is was a pain in the butt to get through. I can confirm the short piece of super flexible housing that comes with the R8000 derailler threads through like a dream but i needed full length housing for my build and was stuck with stiffer housing at that length.

I prevously built up a full mech with the ergonovas and it was an equal PITA so they didnt make any improvement in the newer generation unfortunately. A 2mm larger hole at the shifters would make a world of difference!
