    Does anyone have any suggestions for the rear mech cable routing. I have trouble getting into the high gears due to kinking in the outer

    I know what you mean, i’ve just released the cable from the top fastner on the seat stay and zip tied it to the rear mech cable, seems to have done the trick as it now kinks in a wider curve.

    I had hassle with the cable creeping through the cable guide clip (the one near the top of the rear triangle closest to the pivot) from rear to front until there was enough slack for it to kink. I made a stopper using tightly wound insulating tape around the outer on the mech side of the cable guide, and that kept the cable as tight as possible when the suspension is fully extended, and it’s been fine since. I was thinking prior to that if taking a whole new outer under the bottom bracket. Sorry no photos, bike’s at my folks.

    I think the brake hose is at risk as well and I’ve already pierced one.

    I tell a lie, I’ve found this photo (not great), stopper is yellow tape just to the left of middle cable clip. As el_diablo has done, I’ve ditched the top one.

    Its has to be said the rear mech cable routing on the Blood is poop.

    I run mine loosly zip-tied to the guides such that when the suspension moves the outer just slides over the guide and does not compress towards the top cable stop. Which works pretty well.

    Here’s a picture of mine when the suspension is compressed – not pretty is it?

    It’s not, see how tightly kinked the brake hose is as well.
