Hex through Steerer Cable Routing

8 posts in this topic

I cannot find any info on how to route the front brake cable through the steerer tube on a hex. I have the threaded top cap with the hole for the cable but there is not enough space between the tire and the fork to clear. The only way I can see is to drill a hole in the back side of the steerer on the fork. Is there something I am missing? Thanks.

Don't think there's anything you're missing.

My mate took a file to it.

That is not in my present or future, but good point.
