    Hi fellow Zesty riders

    Has anyone noticed serious cable rub in their chain stay bridge from the front mech cable?

    Seen it on a couple 2011 models

    Premier Icon Pawsy_Bear

    Same on 2010 but you can just reroute or as I have a small piece of proptector in place. Was told that it wasnt an issues becasue the carbon there is just covering bottom bracket.


    sounds kinky


    maybe you are right ! 😀


    All i’d say is that everyone should check the routing and re-route as necassery

    I didn’t check under the cable for 5 months and when i did there was a major gouge worn into the weld of the chainstay bridge. A good 5mm or 6mm deep in the middle

    If left for any prolonged amount of time, i’d expect a failure

    Also, if i was buying 2nd hand, then i’d steer well clear of one with such wear marks



    Not noticed it on my 2011 Zesty (er…but I pretty well laminated the whole chainstay/BB with ‘copter tape when I got the bike) Mind you, my wife’s just bought a Zesty 214 in the sales, so I’ll check the cable runs and do some ‘copter taping.

    Cheers for the heads up.
