Two cables...one hole?
« on: July 10, 2017, 06:57:14 PM »
Hi-I have an IP-036 (Ican) with internal cabling.  Is it possible to feasibly route the front and rear derailleur cables through the same upper and lower lower holes?  What specific cable boots or methods should I use to do this?  This is my first build so any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

I believe you can have some experienced mechanic widen the holes to accommodate that but that would entail some structural risk. Plus probably void your warranty.  I only suggest that because I did saw on FB some local guy had his cf frame drilled to accomodate DI2 system.

Personally, I suggest to just go with 1 chainring and ditch the fd altogether. Makes your cycling life easier.

Totally understood, but here's the thing-I know I can run both cables without housing inside the frame....what I really need is a way to have both housings 'interface' with the existing frame holes.  I still have the bike on the stand (haven't ridden yet).  I plan on looking at going to a 1x setup but for now I'm 10x3. I currently have both shimano housings going to the upper and lower holes using the rubber boots included with the housings.....does this change anything?
