    Stanton Switchback Owners - Stealth Routing ?

    Yo MTBR folk,

    Looking for some help with the stealth routing on the Switchback. Website says, internal down the down tube, round the BB and then up the seat post...

    That seems to be where the cable housing wants to go, but should it be going through the yoke by the tire?

    Couldn't seem to find any photos on the webs that showed proper placement after you round the BB...

    Any insight/ banter - greatly appreciated.

    Not a Switchback owner, but was researching the Sherpa Ti and routing is similar. A Google search retrieved a link to a ton of photos, and yes it's as you think. The housing goes under the BB shell, then vertically up between the chain stay bridge and BB shell to the seat tube penetration. I thought it odd to have a vulnerable opening in the back of the seat tube, in the path of slop the tire might throw. But the UK is notorious for being muddy, so it probably works. No personal experience here.
