    Okay, TB Eddi, talk to me about this stealth reverb. Did you really just drill a hole in your frame? Use resin to hold an insert? Something? Don't lead the witness like that. That is a great looking build.

    Dear onlyontwo, sorry to everybody for my non perfect english, try to explain: i startet to route the cable, to see where do i drill the hole. than i put a plastik tape on this position and start to drill hispeed but without any pressure with a small numer 3 - than i check whats happen with the material. - everything fine! than i go forward every step 4/5/6/7 untill 8mm. with this size of hole, that little plastic peace from the electronic shop has enough space. around the hole and inside this plastic peace i fill up with silicon. the hole in the carbon was very clear like drilling a hole in aluminium. the wall is about 2.5 mm thick... by the way i own a bike shop and i know to handle expensive stuff with card - and i checked out with the guys from santa cruz switzerland about the thickness of the carbon at this tube. of course i would drill a hole everywhere, but there is now problem - and it looks sexy as hell... if the frame crack, i will inform you immediately

    Awsome build...
    Did you or the lbs drill a hole in the seattube for the stealth cabling?
    Guess it would void the warranty.
    Or is it a brandnew option..
    Imo, It wouldn't be a big prob to ad a stealth seatpost 'gate' during the layup in production.

    Sorry, sorted out now.
    I was in hybrid display mode on teh forum so I overlooked comments.
    Switched to linear and all is fine, nice after 7 years
    I'm contemplating the same idea, if your frame holds out mine will certainly do fine.
    Looking at the protection you probably ride on more demanding terrain.

    Seems risky. Keep us posted. For such an expensive frame SC should route all internal - looks so much cleaner.

    I agree, they could learn from Niner's cable routing system (although said not perfect) it sure looks cool. TallboyC and LTc with cable routing would be outstanding! I like how TB_EDDI did this, it looks stock.

    Nice build TB_EDDI, the bike looks sick!

    I'm not an engineer, but my understanding is SC frames are one piece layup.
    So getting internal route I don't think is possible.

    Other carbon frames are made in sections that are then bounded together. Thus allowing for the internal routing.

    I'll take the strength of a one piece frame over sections glued together just so I can have internal routing.

    Lots of single-mold, monocoque frames have internal routing. It's more common on road bikes at this point, like this Colnago.



    All CF frames, regardless of whether they are one-piece or bonded sub-structures, are constructed from multiple sheets of epoxy-impregnated CF in a mold. For internal cable routing, the routing pieces are pre-positioned in the mold and the CF sheets must conform to their position.
    That adds complexity and cost. Done correctly, it doesn't compromise strength to a significant degree, though it can be argued that it could be a failure point in some cases.

    I think I heard the Jet 9 RDO is monocoque also and it has internal cable routing. Chris Sugai sais the new RIP 9 RDO carbon is monocoque and it too has internal cable routing.

    SC said on the V10 video that they keep the routing external for
    easier/quicker brake changes.

    Internal routing


    It's a pain in the arse and completely cosmetic.

    Internal cable routing

    I don't see any advantage of internal routing on a mountain bike. I would actually prefer external full-length housings on the TB.

    Danridesbikes...Holy hotness. How do you like that setup with the 34 up front? I ran my TB with an angleset to get a similar head angle while keeping the bb low. I actually took it off after about ~3 months.

    That sure is a sick build, I envy those wheels, lol.

    I thought there was a dead rat by your front tire in the pic, lol...

    pedals are ti-axle and mag body - 269g in weight

    not a gucci brand name, but i could have paid 3x the price to have the same pedals with a different etching on

    the front is very tall with the 34's (initially had a 5mm spacer under the stem and the stem in its +ve position, so slammed the stem today and flipped it -ve, yet to ride in anger though) however i think the 34 size suit the 29er better than the 32's

    i could drop them to 120mm if i wanted though, its a future option

    How so? If you check the specs on the 120mm 32 and a 34 at 120mm there is only about a 5mm difference. Now if you're running that 34 at 140mm, then yea I don't get that.
