Intense DVO Recluse Limited Edition
I like the florescent green. I like the army green. But... they just don't go together very well.

Spy Shots of Tahnée Seagrave's New Transition T11 - Fort William BDS
@kiddlivid: Forgot to mention that I have ripped both cables and hoses off of externally routed setups in crashes during races. Avoiding that situation and possible damage to hose seems like a bigger advantage to racers to me.

@chappers998: sorry for your mate, but the "I just found out my brake doesn't work, and I don't have 20 minutes to bleed it, but I do just happen to have a spare brake with the correct length hose in my toolbox" market is pretty tiny, and it'd be dumb to optimize for it.

@chappers998: Why would you have to remove the hose from the bike to fix a seized piston or leaking seal? Neither have anything to do with the hose. I've never seen a hold hose, but it's probably much less likely on an internally routed hose.

@Nobble: I guess I've never had "something go wrong" with my brake that required removing the hose, but not bleeding it. The only 3 problems I've ever had with brakes are needing new pads, needing a bleed, and levers messed up after a crash. None of those require removing the hose to fix. What problem will removing the brake from your bike without bleeding it fix?

I don't get the internal routing hate. I've had several internally routed frames. It takes maybe a couple of extra minutes to route a cable compared to externally and you don't have to mess around with zip ties or other crappy cable attachment mechanisms. I prefer internal because there's less to go wrong (not broken zip ties) and it looks better.

Spotted: Gee Atherton Aboard a Trek Session 29er
Took the industry a while to figure out that you need to increase offset and keep the head angle the same instead of the early 29er models that did the opposite and rode like shit. Now that we've got that figured out it seems like 29ers will dominate medium+ sizes.
