    Functional??? or just esthetics.

    It is nice, but I don't like the idea of another openning for moisture to gain access to the tubing.

    aLaN....in the case of this bike he wanted to mount a water bottle cage underneath the down tube.....cables are usually there and might have not had issues getting around a cage but it was done anyway......

    more interesting is that the rod that the cable passes though had to be passed through the downtube and bottom bracket...brazed in place....and THEN the chainstays were brazed on......the long way around results in an interesting finish.

    as the housing enters the chainstay there is a housing stop in there......which prompted the question, how'd you get a housing stop brazed to the inside of a tube?

    i think internally routed cables only draw attention to the fact that the cables are routed internally.
    It’s impossible to rate welding/brazing quality by looking at a finished frame joint, even an unpainted one. Files, sandblasting, and a good paint job can take care of that. Such a joint will look stellar unpainted, but won’t last. Yet people all the time look at frames and say, “Nice welding/brazing…” The point isn’t to make you paranoid, just to stop saying things like, “That’s nice welding/brazing,” when you see a painted/unpainted frame. -- Grant Petersen
