    Early Gemini's - Rear mech cable routing

    This has been at the back of mind to do for ages, finally pulled the cable out to re-do it but what path do use? As the original setup wears a grooves in the bottom of the seat tube. (I have two grooves!)

    So how are you routing your cables?
    I'm looking at going between the front shock mount (under the shock) and the through the swinging arm (under the shock) and onto the top cable mount.
    Anyone got any experience of this before I start choping cables?

    The rear derailleur cable route on my 03 Gemini was terrible. The original rear brake line routing is fine, at least with hydros..

    To eliminate the sharpest bend in the derailleur cable, I drilled a hole through the swingarm to allow the derailleur cable to pass through. I've been using this setup for a few years now with no problems.

    The location I drilled through is not critical and does not weaken the structure. In fact, a cable pass through hole is present on the newer Gemini as well as the Prophet.

    The angle of the hole drilled is more Acute than Right, 40-45 deg.

    Hope that helps!
