Have you ever re-cabled an internally routed handlebar? I have now and can tell you it's not much fun...

Okay so it's probably more fun than that.

I just wish I could be there on Thursday Dave; I've still got an old military chemical warfare suit which would have kept the worst off.

Only now, in 2017, have I bought a bike with any kind of internal cabling; what a thrusting pioneer of technology I am.

About ten years ago, obviously in anticipation of my recent purchase, a friend passed on a tip about it.  He said never to remove both inner and outer at the same time as each will act as a guide for the other.

Apart from that, you're on your own MR.
