On my SJ Hardtail 29er build, I'm ready to run some cables on my bare frame, and have a question. This is specifically for the rear derailleur cable. Which side of the headtube should I go? The cable stops seem to favor a right side (sitting on) approach, which would make you loop in both directions to get to the shifter (which sheldon says no) and allow for more cable rub on the frame (pic 1). But I am able to sneak it around the left side, though a touch tricky, for a single loop to the shifter, little or no frame contact (pic 2 and 3). Neither of them are extreme on the curves. Just looking for some input before I slice and dice. Thanks.
