    have any of you guys had a problem with the way the shifter cabel is routed? The rear der. keeps chewing up the cabel. So then we came up with this idea on how to route it...

    which ever picture you can see better...

    And that would also be quite possibly the stupidest idea ever.... Internal cable routing is the devil!

    Heres mine

    Much cleaner in my opinion. No cable to whack.
    Sorry for the dirtiness. I ride my bike.

    (as you can see my cable got mashed when I ran 2 rings up front)

    what do you have between your triangle? That looks like a good idea, is it?

    That would be a mud/dirt guard. I got tired or repacking my bearings. The dirt would just pile up and become mush and being the lazy guy that I am I hate repacking my ****. So I rigged up a mud guard.

    I took it off to press in some new bushings.

    Like MM I zip tied the cable to the rear triangle, except I wrap the housing in this spiral wire wrap, its polyethylene and slippery so it holds up. I use the same stuff on the chain stay and front vert post of the rear triangle. Here is a couple shots of it.

    deng i thought i was the only one having this problem ! i changed my cable after it's been chewed up and i put a new 1 and re-routed it underneath the bottom bracket and it was still getting beat up but it's not as bad.

    im going to copy what "manitou2200" did zip tie it on the rear triangle and see if it would work that way. thanks for the info's fellas !

    I did mine the same way that Grant (MotorMonkey) did his.

    Works like a charm.
    Meh.

    Run the rear cable thru a section of vinyl tubing. When I had my 7point, I ran the tubing from the rear derailleur to the cable stop on the top of the downtube. And then zip-ited it to the frame. Offers plenty of protection and worked like a charm. I think there's a pic or two in the IH forum 7point thread of similar set-ups and cable routing.
