    Element RD cable routing

    Question for Element owners out there:
    I'm building up a new element frame, and having a hard time keeping the RD housing from getting precariously close to the chainring, even with the housing securely zip-tied to the housing stops.
    Any pro tips to keep your housing from getting fouled on the chainring?
    Thanks

    an extra zip tie completely around the chain stay
    also rear stop seems to suit Sram and not Shimano, so I don't use the rear stop and again use another zip tie completely around the chain stay

    Thanks--I was thinking an extra zip tie might be the ticket.
