Have a less than a month old Firebird in the garage here. I've ridden it less than 20 hours thus far. I'm noticing cable rub occurring along the top of the carbon rocker where the cables are zip tied. Also on the top pivots of the seat stays, and along the length of the right seat stay. I've tried various taping procedures, but they just fall off. I was wondering what other people have come up with or if they even have this issue, particularly on the carbon rocker. These seem like difficult areas to protect given their rounded nature. Is your housing going over the top of the rocker, the side, or somewhere in between? The housing seems to be of the correct length, but I've attached an image so you can judge.
I have to say that the ano really needs babying. Even after the first ride it was gone on the usual head tube areas.
Functionally, I'm very happy, I'm doing things I've never attempted before.
