1. I have completely removed the liners. I only use them to thread the cables through the frame and then remove them.
Do you remove them because friction concerns?

No friction concerns. They just don’t seem necessary, this removable “lid” under the BB acts as a cable guide already. I don’t see anything against also leaving them on though...

Yeah I basically agree
I think their only function is for threading the cable thru the frame tubes.

On my previous Fuji I went to change the front derailleur cable & that liner was basically
disintegrated for the most part inside the tube
When I tried to pull cable out & leave it in it just all crumbled

I think in the future I will always pull them off once cable is threaded.
Then save to attach when pulling cable out to change
