    Just finished building my A9C for this season. Picked up the Cobalt 3 wheels and they look great (they're almost too "blingy" for my taste though) The Conti tires are also new for this season. Can't wait until it dries up around here. Love this bike!

    Try routing the front brake hose under the fork arch instead of over it. IMO it looks cleaner. But otherwise, straight back 'atcha....love it.

    Not recommended to route brake line under fork as it can get caught by the tire.

    And the other camp says if you run it outside the fork then brush or rocks snag it.

    Zip ties, yeah b-a-b-y!

    Rocks snagging a brake hose above the tire level? I could maybe see brush for certain off trail riders, but I have never snagged brush with a brake cable and don't really see where routing it under the fork would help that much. Not to mention that all manufacturers I am aware of specifically tell you not to do it.

    Front hose looks AOK to me but the rear needs shortening and then running between the front hose and the frame.

    With a suspension fork: Yes
    But with a rigid set-up: Don't see how, the brake line doesn't move. Certainly I've never had a problem.

    Zip ties break. Especially if you do snag the brake line on a bush. You do what you want, but the external routing is safer and I really don't see much advantage to the internal routing. Also, aesthetically, I am not seeing the advantages because the brake line then comes out the front of the fork right under the arch as opposed to slinking around behind the left fork leg and you have to use more zip ties so what is the beautification of that? Most rigid forks you don't have to use any zip ties to route the line since they have snap locks on the back of the left leg (eg Niner).

    I do the outside routing and take grief from the brush and "lay it down in the rocks and tear the brake hose". Either way, someone is going to tell you that what you do is wrong, and give you reasons to change it, no matter which way you route it.

    Slocaus, you give lots of sage advice, so I am sure it is an issue for you, but for me riding single track in the midwest USA this has never been an issue and I have never seen anyone around here riding your setup (although, most of the people around here think they need suspension forks and I have only rarely seen a rigid fork other than mine). I also admit that I do not ride rigid all the time being an old guy.

    Thanks for the advice guys! Some I'll use, some I won't, but I appreciate it all. Agree that the rear line needs to be shortened for sure!
