Open frames (U.P. and U.P.P.E.R.) have full internal cable routing, but they're not on the cheap side.

Planet-X (UK) Holdsworth Mystique (frameset, or a couple of completes). Looks like the U.S. new Blue Hogback is using the same frame.

Ribble CGR SL (frameset or complete). A couple of hundred grams lighter frameset than the above.
Curve Grovel ti.

There’s a few people here with one, seem to be well received. Done a bit of research, there’s a few threads on various forums. I’m in the process of ordering one at the moment, it’s all been straightforward so far

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=143318&start=30

There’s a few posts in that thread. I was also looking at a Workswell gravel frame, but the fork was only 15mm axles I think for the one I liked. Manufacturing quality of the Carbonda is allegedly better than most other open mould Chinese frames as well. We’ll see how it turns out, painted and with seatpost, HS and axles works out to 500 quid
Thanks for the info, much appreciated. With regards to the internal routing, do you know if it uses full length outers, or are the outers only between the shifters & mechs and the cable entry/exit ports i.e. exposed inners inside the frame?
Awfully late, but having just finished a build I figured I might as well chime in. It's full housing F & R from shifter to derailleur.

The ICAN looks pretty good, sadly the largest size is too small! I still haven't bought anything yet, ideally I'd like one of those Orbea Terras, finding one secondhand is the problem.

Not quite - the rear hose exits before the BB - I looked at these frames myself, but the Mason's don't use something like a T47 BB that would facilitate this.

Yep. they are on my list, the UPPER in preference because it's not painted and the weight of course.

ICAN AC388 comes in a larger size, but the tyre clearance is a little less. I think it’ll take 38mm or so

The Giant Revolt Advanced also has internal cable routing.
