    ... and if we just ... I finally did it. I pulled the trigger on a SB-66. Now cable routing?

    So I have been riding hardtails for a couple years, always swore by my trusty transAM and that steel was all I needed. I've been riding harder and harder lately, and after I did my first enduro, I realized that a FS may be in order as I can usually barely walk after a good days ride. Well, yesterday I walked into my LBS and took a SB66 out for a spin. Needless to say, the ride ended in me ordering a frame and some extra goodies. Now, those of you running a 1x10 and a reverb, care to share how you routed your cables? Everything should be in early next week. This will be my first FS build, and I'd like to minimize cable rub as much as possible.

    This is a link to owner manuals. I suggest frame protection, since cable rub is inevitable.

    For the rear brake, it's supposed to run between the linkage and the swingarm, which is a bit of a squeeze. I covered this section cable with some tough cloth tape to protect from rubbage. I suggest you do this too.
