    Well, just like the bike I posted on the first page, it is possible to hide everything. It's just A LOT of work. And you'll need a top cap/pre load solution.

    The more I think about this, the more swayed I am towards drilling a steerer.
    I want to use a 44mm headtube and a zero stack top cup

    5mm would be a squeeze for hydraulics, but you would be able to use the top cap of the before mentioned headsets for larger headtubes.

    I had a lot of trouble getting the hydraulic line through a T47 BB shell. Had to make a custom sleeve to use in between the cups, drilled the NDS cup to run the line through and shortened the drive side cup on the lathe to get the di2 wire into the chainstay.

    @PhilDAS, interesting tactics. using a 1,5 external top headset bearing with a 1,125 steerer (or tapered steerer) for extra room to run your internals.

    Ahh right, so only the front brake goes through the fork, the rest goes through the headset.

    I used Shimano SM-BH59 which you don't feel at all.

    I've been looking in to perfecting all of this for my next build. And since the space inside a steerer is so limited, I've been thinking about losing the sleeve or any other form of star nut/expander plug.

    And I'm currently looking into 2 options, go for a One Up EDC lockring for my pre-load. This means I don't need a top cap, thus not needing a star nut of expander plug. https://www.oneupcomponents.com/collecti­ons/edc

    The second option would be a problem solver adjustable headset spacer between the stem and headset. Not sure about the looks though.

    I drilled the internal routing to use it as an exit (which never happened). The internal routing always makes a bend at the end of the fork leg to go out, perfect for drilling into it.

    You'll have to start at the bottom when you're running your hose since you'll never find that hole when you start from the steerer.

    @PhilDAS Shame!

    @motoko Yes, drilled behind the stem.

    @PhilDAS I used a hylix fork on my last build, there is no room in the fork crown for routing the front brake line through the fork. I used an endoscope to check.
