    Dawg Primo cable routing

    Hey, I just bought a 20" Dawg Primo frame and when I got it together the front derailluer cable rubs on the right rocker arm. It looks like that over time the cable will saw into the aluminium. I am using the stock XT derailluer. I think I'll end up putting a cable housing over it and call it good I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I should add this is the 2005 frame.

    Is it the housing above the seat tube stop or the bare cable below the stop that is rubbing?

    It is the bare cable after the cable stop on the seat tube. After leaving the stop the cable angles down toward the der. and comes in contact with the lower part of the rocker arm right by the pivot on the seat tube. What I've done for now is put a piece of cable housing over the bare cable where it contacts the arm. It works but I wish I didn't have to do something like that. I was just wondering if anyone had the same problem and any different ideas for a fix. I will post a picture later.

    Strange the Dawgs have the stop above the pivot. It is below it on the Coilers. Your fix may be the best solution.

    i had the same problem w/ the stock xt f.d. however i remedied the situation by stripping the cable binder bolt on the xt...oooops! i replaced it w/ a SRAM and no rub.
    you might also want to put a piece of tape on the rocker.
