Truth owners - I have one question I could use some help with (05' Truth frame); what should the cabling config look like just in front of the seat tube & under the top tube, where the front der. cable bends and heads down to the der. unit? The hyd. brake cable is to be centered between the two bare shift cables and attached by the zip tie frame mounts. But when this hits the rear mount, the brake housing needs to bend outside (or through?) the seat/top tube gusset before it runs down the seat stay to the brake? I got it back from the shop tonight having the final components (Hayes Map Plus); the brakes. They did an awesome job, but it just looks odd in this area. See attached pic; the brake housing is zip tied to the front der. cable and the rear frame mount is not used (for the brake housing).
As I type through this, it seems that the brake housing should attach to the rear frame mount and sneak through the space in the frame gusset. As it is now, the bare front der. cable and the brake housing cross just prior to the rear mount and it just doesn't seem correct.
If anyone wouldn't mind posting a pick of their setup (w/ the front of the bike facing the left) I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance,
