Tiny hole in new frame, normal?
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:24:25 PM »
Hi guys I just received the Workswell 062 carbon frame, and just about the bottom bracket there is a tiny pinhole:

Is this normal?

Yes it's for running a front derailleur cable. The hole looks weird though. Any chance you could take a clearer picture?

If you do not use a front derailleur, plug this hole with silicone or a rubber plug to limit water ingress.

You were right, after putting the bike together I found out it was for the front derailleur cable. Thanks a bunch!

Good tip, yes I decided to go with single speed in the front, thanks!
