I am building a used Trance X and finally getting all my parts and assembling. I installed the front der and cable, I noticed that the seat tube cable stop appeared to be slightly angled on riders left, and the der pull for a X9 is close to the chainrings. Anyway, I installed the cable housing from the top tube rear stop under the rest of the top tube, then it was a straight shot on left side of the seat tube to the last cable stop. I was checking something and looked at the bike pics on MTBR and saw everyone had the cable winding around the seatpost on right side. Granted this right side wrap mount can be tight to the frame, but the route seems much more direct on the left. Am I missing something?
