Some weather proofing essentials have arrived...

And I've just had a phone call from the powder coating company saying the frame is ready to pick up, which is a much quicker turn around than I was expecting Smile

Oooh! Is it a cable holdy thing? Where you get it?

Yeah, a clamp on cable stop so I can run full outers. Middleburn cable oilers too so that I can keep things running smoothly easily.

How come you didn't just drill out the cable stops on the frame before you sent it to powder coaters?

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but as far as I'm aware I'm still going to have to terminate the outer before it reaches the front dÃÂrailleur. As the frame was designed to run exposed cables along the down tube there aren't any cable stops past the two located close to the head tube.

I'm planning on running the outers through drilled cable stops at the start of the down tube, replacing the cable guide under the bottom bracket with a clamp of some description (P-Clips currently, unless anyone has any better ideas?) and then using the 'clamp on' cable stop to terminate the run just before the mech.

A single ring would be lovely, but I just don't have the legs for the grind up Blue Bell Hill everyday with one!

Meanwhile, one dipped frame has been collected. I'm sure it'll look lovely when it's polished a bit. Maybe...

An exposed cable won't get sticky or anything nasty, there's no probs with running exposed from high on the down tube all the way to the front derailleur as there's nothing for gunk to create friction against.
Keep it foolish...
