    Yahoo for non internal cable routing on the CZAR

    My Niner has internal cable routing and it sucks tail. Thank you Turner for avoiding that fiasco.

    You know mountain bikes have gotten really excellent when something as silly as internal cable routing is marketed as a Big Deal!

    This trend may cause as much mechanic frustration as Avid disk brakes.
    The drive towards achievement and success is the motive power of civilization.

    Likewise the rear-cabling for the Pivot Mach 6 is not continuious. An otherwise perfect bike, but not for the UK. David Turner knows how to build good bikes, just wish one of those had 155mm travel and in Carbon. I've got a few years until I need another bike so am happy to weight.

    OT - I recall that DT asked us Forum Homers sometime back whether we wanted internal routing. We all said no thanks. David appears to be a good listerner too.

    I have a friend with a Niner Air, nothing but problems with his routing... We're talking about just running a cable the length of the frame, getting rid of the internal stops.

    The FD one is a real pain in the ass.

    I have no issues with my Czar though!
