picture of hemlock with rockshox reverb
Not a Reverb but the principle is the same, this is with a KS i900.
Cabletying to the other cables worked reasonably well, but the cable ties can end up moving around and it left a bit uncontrolled bit in the middle so I was never very happy with that approach. Added a cabletie in the middle of the TT but that was pretty unattractive.
So, I got some of those wee stick-on cable guides instead. They’re not massively strong, though, so I also have a single cabletie around the TT/seat tube brace, which takes the strain off the cable and guides everything really neatly.
No problems with the linkage etc, the cable pokes backwards but stays out of the way.Posted 5 years ago
thanks for the reply, didnt think of the stick on cable guides. going to give these a tryPosted 5 years ago
I’ve tried a couple of different ways and prefer a dead straight run down the seat tube, with the cable able to move up and down that. It’s then cable tied to the rear brake hose. The straight run is nice because it doesn’t bend at the hose end, stick out sideways at all or run any risk of hitting the wheel.
For guides on the moving section I have bodged my way using just cable ties and so far They’re working well. Each is: one around the hose, loose, maybe 20mm diameter; that I zip tie tightly to the frame. If that makes sense! The guides that came with the reverb were very fragile.Posted 5 years ago
(EDIT! Can’t work out how to post them up)
With the saddle up the natural concern is it might foul the coil but it’s fine – there’s enough clearance and it’s held fairly well laterally by the routing before/after.
I quite liked JoeG’s post clamp idea but I found that I needed 2 or 3 guides to make sure the hose always keeps sliding straight and is held secure laterally. Also when I looked it was expensive from the US only.Posted 5 years ago
That didn’t work did it? Here’s another try…
All the way up:
All the way down:

somthing that came to my head. you have the longer linkage so routing down the back like that works fine. when you have the shorter linkage like me (think its 120mm?) the small brace at to top of the brake stays will hit the frame slightly when you bottom out very hardPosted 5 years ago
