    Re: New School "Get...Shifty"

    Why not mount it on a bar end clamped to the seat post, it might make shifting a little less awkward... very little. haha

    I guess it all depends on riding position and how comfortable you are with public adjustment.

    You gotta throw down a little electric tape on your frame before you drill on paint!

    Re: New School "plumbing"

    How about put some white lithium grease on the cable housing so that if it does spin it won't chew it up.

    Maybe make a little "spring" that will hold it down?

    Re: New School "plumbing"

    What if you welded a channel onto the spacer, like a cable guide, then the spacer wouldn't move for sure, and if it did it would just destroy the cable all at once and you'd immediately know if it was moving.

    How about JB Weld a small nut on standing up on the bottom and then just use a tie wrap to pull it down.

    Re: New School "plumbing"

    the spacer is supposed to snug up with the bearings, they spacers keeps the bearings from being pinched. if the spacer isnt "snug" with the other cup installed it will just rattle around lose in there. If thats how it is, just dont tighten the cranks completely,but i would put some of that blue loctite on the crank bolts to keep them in place. I like kingfish's suggestion though for the best solve on the routing.
