    Internal cable routing as it relates to cable housing bend?

    I see some housing inlets like this one.

    And fewer like this one.

    Does the latter make for cable housing that is too tight? I was taught that cable housing runs should have a not-too-short-not-too-long length to them.

    Does it matter, if ignoring necessary reinforcement?
    Disclaimer: I run Regular Cycles (officialy in 2016, functionally in 2020).

    I'm not sure what u are asking so maybe this response is useless but the Ahern is full length housing routed internally within a brass or stainless tube, and the other is normal/cable stops at each end of frame with maybe a plastic hose inside the frame to guide the cable thru the frame, like the Nova kit that uses a brass sleeve.
    I think most are going with the first option because its more protected from the elements, easier to fab, and cleaner looking. Probably smoother cable pull too. Sorry if you already knew all that...
