    Anyone have a list of Internal cables headset, stems and bars

    Hi,

    Trying to put together a custom road bike build with fully internal cables.

    Anyone have a list of the different brands that make components for that purpose.

    Thanks.

    knowing the frameset might generate a better list of components - the ones compatible on your frame.

    What are you talking about? Could you be any more vague? What 'components'? Which frame?

    The "external" components don't really care if the cables are internal unless the cables come out of the frame in the wrong place. In that case, the frame is the problem.

    I genuinely think this could be a great thread.

    Clearly there is an ability to 'clean the appearance' by eliminating the cable appearance.

    Compatbility issues, aesthetics, 'how to get around propriety', etc

    But factual parts are needed. Vaporware is ...... well ... not available



    Personally, I can see wireless shifting eliminating some cable runs, maybe. But for brakes, I will always have a physical connection - levers to the brake system; no bluetooth here. Hiding it is an aesthetic, I prefer serviceability over time.

    SS or fixie with one cable does it too, if you dare.

    Pretty much every frame that has internal routing is unique. There isn't any way to 'just do it'. There isn't much talking about it to be done.

    Maybe if we're talking about people drilling holes in frames and setting it up themselves but otherwise there's nothing to talk about.


    There is no 'maybe' about electric shifting eliminating come cable.

    Hi,

    I mean any particular brands that have headset specific for internal routing.
    I saw token have a design but it seem they only sell to the big name manufacturer not to individuals.

    I have seen some stems but not the corresponding headset.
    Example this: https://www.scott-sports.com/us/en/p...ic-31-8mm-stem

    Again...if the frame isn't designed w/ that type of stem in mind it will not work. If you run the housing/hose through that stem where will it go on a normal frame? Or even a frame w/ integrated housing that enters through the side of the frame? If the frame doesn't use full length housing what will stop it? The headset isn't going to change anything. It's obvious you don't know enough about this to attempt doing it.

    Also, GD isn't the correct part of the forum to post questions about components. I'll bet you can find the one that is.
