    '04 NRS Carbon rear der. cable question

    I finally started building up my NRS Carbon tonight and when I was running the cable/housing for the rear derailleur I noticed that the cable stops on the drive side seat stay weren't actually stops and allow the housing and ferule to pass straight through. Are you suppose to run full length housing from the top tube stop to the rear der. or is something amiss here. All the other cable guides are normal.

    Thanks

    Are you running Discs?

    On mine, the only cable guide that is not a "stop" is for running full length hydro housing. The other ones are "stops". Thanks!

    I am running discs and the brake side guides are hydro compatible. The stops on the drive side seat stay are not stops - they look like what a normal stop looks like after you drill it out to run hydro lines through them, but they came this way from the factory. So your drive side seat stay stops for the rear der. are actually stops and not designed for full length housing? Strange

    My NRS Air has it set up so that the housing runs right from the seat tube to the rear derailleur. So to answer your question, no there not stops cause your only supposed to clip the housing into the bracket.

    Full length housing is it then. I've never seen a frame come from the factory setup to run full length housing to the derailleur before so I was a little addled, but now I'm straight.

    Thanks for all the help

    this is my .02 cents.
    since the cable stops are bonded to the carbon seat stays. the housing and stops probably causes enough tension for cables stops to press through, which i have seen happen on 4mm der. housing. and also tension may cause the rivet/bonding to loosen and may disturb the carbon laminate. i have drilled out my rear der. cable stops cautiously to prevent mis-shift and water and contaminates to corrode my stainless steel cables.
