Hi

I have a 2017 Specialized Roubaix with mechanical disc brakes and internally routed cabling. I can't figure out if the brake cable housing is full length internally routed or if it is just short lengths of housing at either end as with normal external cabling.

Would anybody know the answer please?

 

Cheers

Just speculating but I'd guess full length housing all the way. Way too much risk of bare cable slicing into some carbon somewhere otherwise.

If you search around the Internet there are tech guides on specialized's site. It's outers up to the point it goes into the frame
There may be some inner guides but not always.

Nope and in some frames if you cross them you can get gear shifts every time you brake.

If you can't figure it out yourself or he needs to google for the manual...it's time for the chap to take it to a bike shop  1
