internal mechanical shift cables - great detail!

Impressed by how clean the frame looks without the shift cables.

Do you use a housing stop for the shift cable in the downtube or run them through a tube? I have the same question about the chainstay.

Do you have a picture of the bottom bracket before its welded to the downtube and chainstays you could share? I assume there's holes or a slot for the cables to enter & exit the BB?

Thanks! We use housing stops. You're spot on, there's holes and a holding plate for the cable to keep it in place at the BB.

If any of you guys are at the BESPOKED show in Bristol or SPIN show in London, make sure to pop down at our stand as we'll be presenting our brand new road disc machine Illuminati. Based on a super compact geometry, oversized tubes, PressFit30 bb and thru-axle dropouts this might be the stiffest frame you will ever come across. Diamond shaped toptube from seamless Grade 9 ti is just a cherry on top

Here's one hell of a project - belt driven track frame with assymetrical seatstays.
