From the factory this Spark needed a new brake hose installed- it was kinked at THE HEADSET ROUTED LINES.

IR kit won't fit through the rubber grommet on the chainstay and the bends are too harsh to route it through by hand so removal of the entire rear end is necessary.

POS Scott


What a joke.

Just wanted to share my frustration.

Keep wrenching.

Man that really sucks. Looks similar to the specialized stumpy line. Super annoying to route cables especially without any cable being in already.

I got shouted down really hard in the comments of the article on this recently, for having the audacity to say I thought they looked like they'd be a pain in the arse to work on.

And here we are, point proven!

But hey, they do look super clean. That is about all the designers care about.

"You don't like headset cable routing? You must be a bad mechanic."

More like, only a good mechanic can appreciate just how bad of an idea it is.
