Hi,
I've struck an issue in building up my old Attitude frame. Aside from the normal frustrations of internal cable routing (looks so good though) I've hit a snag with the rear brake. With V brakes there's no cable stop on the rear of the top tube, just a hole. I guess cantis didn't need the stop, but I'm not sure what to do with the cabling to the rear brake? Two options I've considered are running the cable and housing outside the tube using zip ties (pretty average) or placing the brake noodle up against the exit hole in the frame as a brace (not good either). Has anyone found a better solution. I'm going single speed on a Gator Fade with MC1 and Mag 21s. Any other tips are much appreciated.
Cheers,
Matt
