    Nice ride, you chose the continuous cable housing option! Curious to hear how you like the CCDB shock...have you tried the stock Fox Float X for a side by side comparison?

    Interesting way to route the cables and doesn't look half bad. Curious as well to see how that CCDB is on the M6….thought about getting the Inline CC.

    Nicely done.

    I'll be going full housing on the derailleur as well sometime before winter hits the PNW.

    I'm digging the external cables. Easy to install/maintain and zero hassle when riding. I hopeful the bike industry re-invents external cables as a huge "new and improved" feature.
    Safe riding,

    Cable routing....

    The M6's cable routing is very finicky, but if done "just right" it works out to be one of the best I've encountered.

    You've just got to work on the placement of the housing and cut it to the precise length.

    I think too many folks have given up on pursuing the correct routing method too quickly - I almost did.

    The Pivot routing does work if done perfectly...and it better be perfect. When it is time for cable replacement I am going to try the routing used by the guy from France. That looks like the easiest and best solution yet.

    I am not wanting to try the CCDB. Not to thrilled with the Float X. How much do you weigh and what kind of terrain are you riding?

    Thanks for the reply Bertrand. "The guy from France" sounded pretty lame didn't it? There was no insult intended.

    I really like your solution to the cable routing. It is the best solution I have seen to the one mistake Pivot has made on this bike. Other than that I love this bike and can't wait to try the CCDB shock.

    Just out of curiosity, being from France, have you tried the BOS Kirk shock? I am reading such good things about it. I am trying to decide between the BOS and the CCDB. The BOS has just become available in the US.

    Hi - Where does one find the little plugs used to cover up the internal frame ports? Thanks! It really is a shame it's not beneficial to use the internal routing

    Good idea thanks. I'm not using the internal cable routing on for shifting or brakes.

    I don't understand why people dislike the cable routing on the M6. I agree it is a bit of a pain to install but after that it is awesome. The routing is clean, quite and hassle free. I'm perfectly happy with it and would never consider sticking any adhesive cable mounts to my beautiful frame. Just my opinion.

    I've found it anything, but clean and hassle free on our 2 M6's.

    I've switched my bike to external cable guides already and will do the same for the GF's bike next over haul.

    The extra few inches of exposed cable housing on my bike is totally a non-issue and servicing cables is now super easy.

    I'm also going to drill out the rear derailleur guide and run full length cable housing on our bikes. We live in the PNW so that last 12" of exposed cable is right where the rear wheel dumps water and grit.
    Safe riding,

    My derailleur housing broke during a race. The protective shell wore off and the inner wire core exploded! Not the cable, the HOUSING - from rubbing against the brake hose & the shock over a period of about 5 months. I've since switched to stick-on cable guides for the derailleur & I'm waiting to do the brake, which is a pain because I'll need a new hose, fluid & bleed. The stock M6 routing causes wear & tear to the cables, cable rub on the shock, & yes it works for a while, it can fail when you least expect :-(

    And maybe that is the difference. I live in the desert and after nearly a year on the bike have not had one issue with the cables. But I rarely ride in the mud.

    you also have to remove the entire rear shock in order to access/thread cables thru the frame. what a pain! good luck doing that on the trail.
