    XCL cable routing recommendations

    I'm about 3/4 finished with my XCL build and running my cables tonight. Just to be sure about the routing, I looked at the 'Sticky' photos. Seems that most of you guys have both derailleur cables run to the right of the headtube. So the rear der. cable doesn't 'cross over to the left as with most builds. Any problems with this routing such as frame paint wear or shifting issues?

    ..... just want to be sure!

    Both my derailleur housing stops are on the right side of the top tube, so it made sense to run both to the right and it has worked fine.
    Hope that helps
