Beware the MTB-009 hasn't much room for single chainrings.
32T is fine.
34T maybe too.
But not more.

I tried the IP-256 and WW-062 before.
But if one unfortunate day, I break my beloved CS-041, I would buy one again from Peter in a heartbeat !

To be sure, you need to give a good tension to the thick cable too, so it will take the same route as the derailleur cable.
And may be rub at the same spot(s).

Could someone with a 057 knowing the internal routing come to the rescue  ???

I used a mix of plastic and alloy end caps without problems.
Eliminate everything step by step to find if one element is causing the issue or if it is coming from the inside of the frame.

Here is how I did a while ago:,230.msg2109.html#msg2109

It was with a 256 frame.
There may be some variation in the 057 you will need to adapt.

Did you try first with a ticker cable to feel if something is rubbing?

There maybe some dirt in a tube the cable goes in.
You could try to insert a thicker steel cable, like an old brake one or even thicker.
And pull on one side then the other, keeping a tension, multiple times until it moves freely.
Making some extra room for the shifter cable.

Or you can run full housing, by drilling the ends.
I did that on most of my frames, but never had a 057.

Thank you @325racer for the Carbonda info, it is exactly what I needed !

Searching for more details about these builds( Google Image search is amazing to find related pages of a picture )
I found this forum with a ton of information about these gravel frames:

With the winter coming, the idea of building a Gravel is coming back.
Last year I dropped it as I didn't find a right frame.

Here is one that I really like:
A picture from Taipei Cycle Show 2017

And a picture from this link  with an interesting twist on wheels for a gravel

It has a tall headtube, short chainstays, the room for 40mm or 650B tires, and I find it particularly good looking :)

Peter was considering it last year but preferred to go with another model.

There is a web site that sells it $branded$, but it looks only for the US.

Anyone knows where to find it ?
Did someone already contacted Carbonage ? An email?
I only found a phone number, I'm too shy to call, so far

If you want to stock some integrated 1.125/1.5 headsets.
Here are some with a good price:

On Saturday 11.11 they will be at about $8
I recently got two of them and they are fine.

Thank you for these links full of material !
There is much more on bike theory than I thought.

Just to know, what a modern geometry/boost bike has that is so much better ?

Thanks a lot! Very interesting.
What a chance, I understand Spanish  :)

When i drew it on my program i used mono pivot and my numbers came up much better than what is in the library. That was a concern as to how low the anti-squat values were but after i drew it a few times just to be sure i was more confident the frame would work well.

Would you mind to share some theory behind this, or good web sites where I could educate myself ?

hi there - joined a couple of weeks ago and sure do a appreciate the heaps of information I come across on this forum
Just bought myself a WorksWellBikes WCB-M-096 and started building it up - :)

Nice bike and original !  :D
What tire sizes do you use?
Does the fork came from them too? Painted this way, or you gave them the model?
