    Internally routing hoses + cables

    Folks,

    What size stainless tubing are you using to route hydraulic hoses and shifter cable?

    Looks like 5/16" automotive brake line with a .028" wall results in a .257" (6.5mm) ID. I assume that should be fine so long as I'm not running any tight bends.

    Thanks
    -T-

    The 5/16" you mention would probably be perfect. Since I only do short pieces (dropper routing entrance for example) I usually use an even thinner wall 1/4" stainless tube.
