There is no internal routing on the alloy frames, you can try these jagwire stick on guides:

They work pretty well and you can run the cable where ever you like.

Actually there is internal routing on the alloy frames. My bikes cables are ran internally, its a little noisy at times, but we have it on the alloy frames.

Very confused Is it actually possible to use internal routing without some magic tools ? (magnet's etc)
The carbon versions have an inner liner thing built in. But alloy is like .. nope. Facepalm

Like the look of those external sticky mount's tho Eek

I’ve got an aluminum frame, a bit of a pain and some time but drop your fork and push your cables through from the rear of the bike. Should be able to use your fingers to guide it once it’s pushed through to the head tube

How I always do it is;

Get a piece of Paracord from your local hardware store or Walmart ($3). Pull one of the little strings out from the inside of it. Drop it in from the top and let it run all the way down. Get a paper clip and bend it, fish out the little string. Set it against your brake cable and run a bit of tape around it to make it secure. Then just pull the string from the front of the bike and the brake line pulls through with no problem.

Super easy and take the frustration out of trying to find the cable and get it through.

bigquotespushed through to the head tube
Bleddy forgot the headtube is hollow inside xD .. That seem's like a good method

That's a good idea too. or some kind of mini-hook

Shame it's a pain either way. Why couldn't we have removable covers like most internal routing frame's have now Dead Horse

Was going to try magnet and shifter cable along the outside of the frame. but it's still the same problem when you get to pulling it through the hole huh

Thanks for the links to the stick-on cable guides, I'd never seen those, they look great, I'll definitely try some.

I got a big pack of these for cheap from the hardware store:

Those Jagwire ones are expensive. Maybe I'll try to spray the hardware ones flat black so they don't look as terrible. They do make black plastic ones, but these were in-stock and cheap.

Confused need more help please.. How exactly do you change a spring on the rear shock ??
Was about to buy one but then realised you need to remove it from the link end instead.

Do you only need to remove that bolt on the non-drive side ? or do you literally have to take it all apart. (dumb design if that's the case)

oh.. not how to actually change spring. that's simple enough. i mean how you undo the bolt on the link itself ?
hex each side and counter-clockwise to undo.. but what's actually holding it in place ?

Also will ton's of washers and stuff all fall out when you remove the shock ?
