Advice on cable routing

Posted on
  • Hi,
    I am building a bike for the first time, and I am trying to route the cables. The bottom bracket doesn't have a cable guide, and I cannot see any holes or marks from one being brazed on. The existing cable stops on the frame look like they may have been designed for cable casing to guide the cable round the bottom bracket - see last 2 pics where I added the casing to show what I mean.

    I have never seen this set up before, and I am worried the sharp angle of the casing may stop the cable running freely. Should I just buy a cable guide and stick it to the frame? Or is it OK to use casing to guide the cable under the bottom bracket?
