    X Carbon internal cable routing

    Hi.

    Does anyway have a rough idea of how big the internal route hole in the x carbon 2010 frame is for the brake hose. I was wondering if you can thread a hose through with the fittings on the end of the hose ( formula k18 brakes).

    Thanks

    You might be able to if you don't have the derailleur housing already installed. I installed my shifters first, but was also installing new brake hose. I would never had been able to get hose with fittings through unless I took out the shifter housing.

    Assuming you have to cut the hose to length anyway, I just cut the hose, put a toothpick or something to plug it, route it, then reattach with new barb and olive. Easy enough.
    And if you have to do a basic bleed, it's good experience for future.
