Hose guide

I'm missing that too. Does anyone know the bolt spec/size please?

You can run something in the easy direction and use it as a guide in the desired direction.

Brake Cable Routing
Hi people -
any advice on getting a shimano Zee brake hose through the chainstay on my 2018 Rallon frame? I've just got the frame and it has come without brakes so no existing hose there to help me. The Zee connects to the caliper with a banjo bolt, which is crimped on and not removable, and too big to fit through the hole. So I have to feed it through the chainstay from the caliper (rear) end, which gives me a tiny exit hole to aim for, and I'm not having any luck. Any top tips? Cheers

Is routing brake cable through the frame as easy as pushing it through? I haven't done internal routed brakes before and am wondering if im gonna be working on it for hours, or if there are internal routing guides that take the cable through?

Any insight would be appreciated!

My mechanic (and friend) was cussing up a storm for a solid 20 minutes when he replaced my brake line. I do not believe there is internal routing

Tie a strong string on old brake hose before removing the hose. Then tie it on new hose. Old hose has to go out of the smaller orifice last and the new hose should be inserted through the same orifice in the opposite direction.

There's nothing in the frame to quide the cables. I've just upgraded my brakes to xtr's last weekend and also had to change hoses so I used that small red tool from rockshox (don't know what's it called) and threaded it into brake hose at headtube to a shifter housing that I had laying around, pulled it through entire frame to come out from rear brake hole and then threaded that tool again into new brake hose and pulled it back with shifter housing until it came out at head tube. I don't know which brakes are you running but I found out with shimano (because banjo is too big for the frame holes to fit through), this is the easiest way for it.

So I have an interesting update.

I made an attempt to route the new brake line through the frame and actually found a foam tube that the previous brake line/shift cable was run through. It could just be something to stop cable rattling in the frame itself but im not sure. I was unsuccessful in routing the new line through this routing tube, but thought y'all should know. I've given up and am taking it into my local shop so they can deal with it.

Yeah that's just a foam tube to stop housing from rattling inside. I've had it out. There are 2 pieces on brake and shifter cables, but nothing on dropper cable. I've bought similar foam tube, added it on dropper cable and bike is insanly quiet now. But I never want to deal with internal routing again Big Grin

Companies have to decide how they want the factory to handle internal routing. Full sleeves add weight and cost; foam sheaths may be less effective and complicate the job of running new housing.

Internal routing is such a hassle.

you say that, yet the internal on my bike is just a port in the frame, and figure it out yourself. Yeah its no orbea, but still, it doesn't have to be complicated

Any 1 tried the 2019 rallon with a mullet setup 29 front 27.5 rear? Going to try it in the higher position still with the 170mm cranks. Just wondering how it effects the climbs and should I expect a load more peddle strikes.

Heres a video that's convinced me to try it. He seems to think it improves the rallon for tight and technical trails. If ur interested skip to about 11 minutes in.
Cheers

A friend did this with Capra 29. He is super happy about cornering and general liveliness of mullet bike, but he does have lots of pedal strikes and climbing is terrible. Haven't tried it with Rallon though but probably is pretty much the same.

Anybody tried the new link kit and can comment on it? Does the rear suspension feel any different. Any positive or negative ? Thinking of buying it but wanted another point of view than the one from prinkbike.

Decided the mullet setup wasn't for me. Lowered the bb too much so had pleanty of peddle strikes also the climbing was notably poorer.

So up for sale is my 2019 rallon m team blue and green size large. Message me if anyone interested for pics and more info . I'm heading back to the 27.5 wheels
Cheers

Why don't you wait for proper mullet enduro bike then?
