    Ventana El Gordo Cable Routing

    I'm trying to get my El Gordo built up and I cant figure out the cable routing , especially for the front derailleur. The bikes I've built have all had the under the bottom bracket, non-full housing, setup. This one has the cable stops on top of the downtube. My front derailleur is a shimano xt direct mount that is supposed to work bottom or top pull, but I cant figure it out. Seems like it has to come from the bottom considering where the cable stop is. Can anybody post a pic of their El Gordo front and rear derailleur cable routing so I dont have to go to the LBS in defeat?

    It does help. thank you very much. Did you use the shimano sealed end caps with tube and shield on the front derailleur?

    Nope.... Just std. cable. Everything works fine.
    Enjoy your Gordo... Best fat bike frame I've ever ridden.
