I recently refurbished a 2000 Attitude Comp frame that I bought off my cousin. He rides singlespeed so had pulled out all of the cables and internal routing from the frame. I was anticipating a whole day of frustration but was able to reroute the whole lot in about 15 minutes with no special tools by doing the following....
1. Get a needle and thread
2. Thread the needle through the internal cable guide (the thin tubes that normally sit inside the frame).
3. Now drop the needle in to the eyelet of the frame. If you angle the frame correctly, the needle and thread is supple and small enough to just come out of the other side of the frame from the appropriate exit hole.
4. At this point, the thread now goes through the internal cable guide (which is currently out of the frame) and then through the frame via the eyelets at the front and back of the tube. The thread can now act as a guide for when you reinsert the cable guide as it will guide the internal router out of the exit hole of the frame.
5. Push the cable router in to the frame, at the same time keep some tension on the thread, keep pushing the cable router all the way in and the thread will guide it out of the exit hole...voila!!!
I'm sure that KleinAttitude will probably point out that in the good old days before Evil Trek, Gary Klein used to personally come round and reroute your cables for you. But for the rest of you, I hope that made sense and I hope its of some use!
