Nope. All you have to do is unhook the cable from the rear brake lever put it through the frame and install a new olive and barb. This can usually be done without even bleeding the brakes. If you're not comfortable just have your LBS do it for you. The internal routing makes total sense and makes the bike look really clean.

I have four spacers in there and I think they are 5mm each so I only have around 20mm of space to work with.
My Razzo build
Here's my build.
1x10 XT with Raceface 33th chainring
Fox 100mm with remote CTD
Avid elixir 7 brakes
San Marco seat
DT Swiss wheels
Bathroom scale 22 lbs
Sharp looking bike. What size stem and how tall are you?

It's 5'11 and I currently have a 100mm stem with a flat bar. I'm going to change the bar to a 1in rise carbon bar.
My custom carbon Razzo
I also have a question i do not like the FSA headset it came with any other riders recommend a headset that's good and I also do not know the dimensions of the headset i should get as well.
I picked up a Razzo SC frame off ebay, and finally got it built up and test ridden:
I'm pretty impressed by how good the ride quality is on this. I demo'd a Trek Superfly last fall, and while it's dangerous to make comparisons so far apart, I think the Razzo ride pretty similarly.
