    Salsa Fargo cable routing help

    Building... what I believe is a large generation 2 (has replaceable hanger) but there are no downtime cable adjusters. Do I have to run a cable the entire way to the rear of the bike? And do I need a special front derail? That will accept a cable end? If anyone has any pics it would be greatly appreciated.

    Get some SRAM inline adjusters. If it is a Gen2 you won't be able to run cable from end to end unless you zip tie it on.

    I bought the jagwire pro kit (road if using drop levers) - it has a plastic sleeve that helps protect the cable from where it exits the stop on the down tube to where it connects further back on the bike.

    So you must have the full housing guides on the underside of the top tube. You'll still need in-line barrel adjusters; I like the shimano ones, the jagwires wouldnt hold their adjustment on rough terrain. A problem solvers direct-mount front dérailleur adaptor and a SRAM direct mount dérailleur will work great for your front shifting.

    Sweet thanks for info on direct mount adapter. After some more Internet search I believe I have the ocean blue 2013 Fargo gen 3
