    Add cable stop to cannondale frame

    I have a cannondale F2000 that has the optimo tubing.

    The existing routing for the front derailleur cable is underneath the bottom bracket - which I have always thought is the most stupid location due to mud etc. This setup therefore uses a bottom pull front derailleur.

    I would like to re route the front derailleur cable to make it top pull (requiring a new derailleur) but this would require installing a cable stop on the seat tube. And of course running the cable along the top tube which can be done without modification.

    Is this possible to do? Easy?

    Clamp-on cable stops exist, that could work assuming the seat tube is round and that the cable won't interfere with the tire.

    Alternately, get a direct mount derailleur adapter clamp and direct mount derailleur and just run full length housing from the top.

    Don't alter your Optimo frame. They are gonna be collector items real soon. No way Cannondale makes frames of this caliber anymore....
