    Surgery successful, patient doing well

    So I went ahead and drilled out my M429c for RS Stealth Reverb. All it took was reaming out the cable stop near the head tube, which I'd been using for KS Lev. So you go from cable size hole to housing size hole. I had a pro wrench do it after signing waiver because it voids warranty, and in any case I can't have pulled it off near as well (if at all). Highly recommended tho if you're looking to convert. The whole frame path is hollow enough to accommodate and it looks smack.

    Well there ain't much to show but here you are. Basically involved taking reaming tool(s) and gradually increasing the size of the existing port's cable stop, going from cable diameter to hose diameter. Fortunately the hose is slightly skinnier than cable housing so there's still metal in the port. No worries over stress risers, chips etc. And that's it! No exit/entry around BB or seat tube needed, the hose threaded all the way thru downtube and up seat tube. Pretty cool actually. Have to give the nod to my wrench Lawrence Saiyo, masterful job of scoping it out and executing flawlessly.
