I may be fuzzy on this, but if you push housing though frame, remove bb cover, put housing into stop, reinstall cover, ie push into place then route housing through extensions to determine length, cut, install cables, pull cover to route through stay and up FD hole push cover back on again

easy...eh, somewhat, just tedious mostly, but better than bare cables routed through which might then cross each other if not careful. dont really care if housing crosses, wont affect anything, but cables cross effs with your shifting and it will never be right until cables not corssed, if bare

Thanks. I was running it from the top, but if I start at the bottom it should be a bit simpler getting the length correct in the end. Sometimes when you are staring at something late into the night after a long day the logical path is never clear!

you run from top, can even run through extensions first and can cut at either end. you just leave a tad extra housing so you can connect to bb stops which will then get pushed into frame, which is all good. frame can actually take up a bit of excess housing

Easier to check that I have enough housing for the handlebars to turn if I am checking at the top, although I suppose it's hard to tell then if the housing is still set in the stops at the BB. I'll figure it out one way or the other, just glad to know there are stops in there since I couldn't find any info at Cervelo's brilliant site/manual (seriously - 5 pages in the manual on using a skewer and no assembly info!).

I suppose I could have just popped off the guide to check, but that would have been way too easy and would have broken the tried and true rule of always consulting Slowtwitch.

Well then, guess I'll watch out for cable cross within the frame and next time I recable do that!

Anyone here had any problems with a 4iiii left sided powermeter rubbing their chainstay? I just installed one my 2015 P3 and the sensor inside of the crank arm rubs on the chainstay as it goes around, it's probably about a millimeter too wide that is causing it to rub. I've got the Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset.

Any way to resolve it? Anyone here use the 4iiii?

Annnnnnnnd I heard back from 4iiii, simple solution = throwing a spacer on the NDS spindle. Boom, problem solved!

Following on from the cable routing thread above, is there a seat tube grommet for mechanical shifting for the front derailleur? I'm converting from Di2 to mechanical and have BB and chainstay grommets, but unsure of the seattube.

If you're referring to where the FD cable comes up out of the BB area and into the FD itself, no, there is no grommet for that round hole

Although there is not a grommet, I got one from the hardware store. On later versions, one was included. If you do nothing to protect the edges of the hole, over time the cable can wear into the frame.

Just finished drilling a hole in the back wall of the plastic cable routing box on my 2015 NP3 54 and routing my rear brake cable through that top tube cable box. Definitely a lot less mushy braking than when I used the existing third hole! It was only slightly nerve racking, but I think it went pretty well. Low torque, low speed, and patience are all highly recommended. Can't use the cover for the routing area anymore, but the plan is to have the Torhans Bento X over it by race season next year so I think it'll be okay. I just ran one piece of cable housing all the way from the brake lever to the brake. Currently covering the now unused routing hole on the side of the top tube with black electric tape and it actually blends in pretty well with the black/grey paint scheme!!!

can you please upload some pictures of the hole in the back wall of the plastic cable routing box? I'm not really sure which part you mean?
