Exactly.

Ordered my Marino with full external routing.

Internal cables are the WOAT for so many reasons.

What are all these reasons? The only one I can think of is the added hassle of maintenance. Other than that better aesthetics and less chance of getting contaminated cables and slashed brake hoses are the upsides.

I will say properly done internal routing (tube in tube) is almost just as easy to route as external line with the only additional bit being disconnecting and reconnecting the brakes.

My Marino has only internal routing no external bosses.


Well said. I was a hard nut to crack over the subject

Posted, toasted and roasted. Never gave it a second look as assumed it would be ok given current trends .. wrong!

I have no idea what the geo on it is but it has a stout looking stance and clean lines...a 36 or 38 would make it a pouncer.
