What do you guys think about running your break cable through your top tube, than have like a barrel adjuster on the seat tube or a London mod or something.. any comments? how would this effect bar spins? or anything else? here's some pics of a guy that did it but that's all i can find..

it looks kinda funny, a bit lighter too because shorter saddle cable, but only 100 grams... it looks like it might make the brakes a bit more responsive. idk, i wouldnt do it

Looks like it would be a pain in the ass to set up, but probably not a huge difference in anything else. Some race frames had that for a while...Seems to have stopped mostly as far as I know though...

theres a lot of bikes out there that have this (mainly road and comfort). its a huge pain in the ass to replace a cable but for those who ride brakeless for that clean look it produces much of the same effect. but yeah huuuuuggeeee pain in the ass!!!!
