    Mach 5 cable routing?

    Can someone post up some picts of their cable routing on your Mach 5?
    Particularly interested in the shock/seatpost area. Trying to decide if cables/brakelines should run inside the shock mount or not. Also how big of loops need to be present for proper suspension function.

    Also my frame came with some clips, are these for the brake line? How did you use them?
    Thanks,
    Josh

    Josh, there are tons of photos of Mach 5's at the top of the forum in the "Post your Pivots here" thread. And yes the cables go through the top shock mount..

    I never liked the supplied clips for securing the brake line. Use zip ties, they do not pop off.

    Agree with others. All three are through the top shock mount (rear brake cable left, rear der cable middle, front der cable right) and use zip ties for sure.

    Another item you may want to use are Lizard Skins frame protectors. There will be several spots where the cables will rub the frame...which I learned the hard way.
