    Now that the grease gun issue is resolved,,,

    I have a more important (at least to me, I have my grease gun ) question. When running the cable housing for the front derailleur are you running it from the rear stop, through the upper link and into the seat tube cable stop or did you go up and around the upper link?

    I went through the link for now, clearance seems ok and it looked like I would have a more severe bend in the cable going up and over. Just curious what everyone else is doing and perhaps what Intense recommends.

    i called the guys at rbike and they told me they told you how to run the cable housing. stop hiding behind your keyboard, stop being a tool and become a stand up guy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ran mine up over the link. It's quite a bend but has been friction free so far. There's also clearance to run thru the link. I've set them up both ways. Most of the pics from Intense show the cable going thru the link.

    i'm running mine inside the link with a nokon housing and it clears a hairline. no rubbing between the link and the cable housing. no movement at all.

    The demo bike I borrowed had it running inside the linkage. It kept getting trapped between the linkage and frame though and the cable outer has worn through quite a bit.

    I will run mine over the link when it arrives
