I can assure you that there is no full internal routing on that frame.

Well if you look closely at the chainstay you would see an exit port........

I have looked very closely and while the main cables like the shifter cables are internal once they enter behind the stem and I would assume most of the rear brake, the front brake will have to be exposed because the cable needs to enter the brake noodle well outside of the frame. Also when I mentioned switching out the aerobars or even using the existing aerobars means that you have to have the cables exit the aerobar extensions and go into the frame.

Full internal routing to me means a bike like the Trek Speed Concept where all of the cable are hidden.

This is full internal routing. Not brake noodles sticking out, not brake cables sticking out, not shifter cables sticking out.

Chinese frame not. Depending on the price of the frame and of course how creative you are it might not be that bad for the money. Will just not be that clean of a run using those style of brakes. Look at other bikes that use that design and you will see what I mean.





AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT

Hey Bman, you never know; could go through the headset area like the new Superslice and leave out the noodle: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/...s/s1600/IMG_8317.JPG

I would like to see the other side of that fork. I think there is a reason why the picture is always taken on that side.

I don't know which bike you're talking about, but if it's the Cannondale I assure you no noodle is necessary:

I'd imagine setup could be even cleaner than the picture above with some care.

Thanks Jeremy. That makes it very clear. Not sure about the Chinese bike but I honestly doubt that they are running the cables the same way but if they are then that is pretty cool.

Sounds super terrific awesome fun time fast. I do like the aerobar though. They are now one of maybe 3 people making extensions that sit on top of the spacers. I would guess right around $1,000, depending on the the redness of the sun, and General Tso's thoughts.

Wow that FM069 looks nice. Since it's my first year doing tri I was thinking of going for a 2nd hand tri-bike or using generic CHN frame + parts. I think going these CHN-TT route seems better as I can add personal decals and the price won't be over the top (thinking $2-3K max). Though the "Five Rings" brand they're selling around the area seems to be CHN-TT with their decals and they're selling it for a bit more, I guess it comes with warranty/support. Oh well, before the year ends I hope to be riding a "new" tri-bike.

Looks like that front brake uses a noodle as does the back I think. OH WELL. Just another carbon knock-off.
