    Ridley Fenix SL internal cable routing question (internal sleeve attached to ferrule)

    I just got a Ridley Fenix SL frame set. It is new and came with all the parts to do the internal cable routing. The cable ferrules for the two derailleur cables have plastic sleeves attached to them that run through the frame.
    My questions are do those stay in the frame for ease of cable replacement? If so where do you terminate then on the derailleur end? The rear derailleur cable runs internally all the way back to the very back of the rear triangle. The front derailleur cable exits the frame just above the BB.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    A picture would help but these are typically guide cables and get removed once you have the (assuming) shift cables installed. You can't land the housings on the cable stops with these present.

    Save them as BTW, you can re-use when it's time to swap cables and housings for new.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    If the ferrules have the liners attached they probably stay. If there are just liners run through the frame then they come out. Photos pls.
