Not for any chance I'm thinking of doing someting like that (i more and more prefer.my cables on the outside - like aethos) but.. Here goes a question from someone that is not that fluent in bike mechanic.

As i understood from the photos the cables go inside the handlebar, then stem and then go on that slot that the expander has. The expander is actually supposed to work with that slot so I'd imagine so far so good. Assuming this the cables are now inside the fork so all good in terms of front brake hose.

The problem is then the rear brake hose which will only exit the fork if a hole is drilled in it (this is where the crazyness begins). Was my reasoning correct or dis I miss something in the process?

Sorry in advance if this is a somewhat stupid question. Again... I just di basic maintance of my bikes and preferably the alum rim brake one that stays 99.99% of the time in the trainer.
