    That is a dual pull front mech.. the gear cable can be routed from the top or the bottom depending on the cable run of your frame..

    Yes, its not very tidy looking but it should be just fine as it is.. although you may want to swap the routing into the adjacent hole for a cleaner line.. and possibly smoother shifting..
    The names have been changed to protect the innocent...
