    Used frame with internal cable routing - is this missing stuff?

    I picked up a used frame (2012 Wilier Cento 1) and built it last weekend. Love the ride, but it has some internally routed cables and I'm not sure I have them installed properly.

    1) Rear brake - There are two "sockets" cast into the carbon top tube. Each is a good bit larger than the brake cable housing - maybe sized for a metal ferrule on each end(?). The campy cable set only has ferrules for the shift cables. Am I right about the missing ferrule?

    2) Also there was a plastic tube with each internal run. It was not attached at either end - is that all there is, just a plastic tube that floats inside to keep the bare cable off of the inside of the frame?

    I can provide pics if necessary.

    Yes, the ferrule is missing because it is not needed

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?


    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
