    Just converted R5ca from external to internal routing

    'Drilled' out 4 holes in the frame plus 2 in the outer BB shell to run Shimano Di2 system. Still external battery though - reason for 4th hole. Cut off the shifter bosses at the front of the downtube as well as the RD boss on right chainstay. Now I need to go out and pick up a rattle can of black paint. Nice and quiet drivetrain now, smooth and clean!

    I am impressed and confused all at the same time. Impressed that you did it even more impressed that you did it on a 10k frame which is the confusing part for me. I would never have stuck a drill to it! Kudos to you! PICS PLEASE!

    Actually a dremel end mill. The guy that did most of the work is the guy that actually built the frame. He did the design analysis on it and it has his blessing. Besides, its the only extra frame I have.

    Very nice Rick. I remember when Don did a couple of them. They turned out nice.

    Re: Just converted R5ca from external to internal routing

    Yes, Don G did the work :-) Nice, clean job!!
    Step 1 - measure Shimano oval grommets
    Step 2 - decide where to place openings, then mask off with tape where to use endmill
    Step 3 - Dremmel out holes, use fine file, then sandpaper
    Step 4 - Big hole in BB outer shell (do not damage inner shell) for junction box
    Step 5 - optional - use Dremmel cut off wheel to remove Der cable guides
    Step 6 - run wires
    Step 7 - put new components on.

    I got a couple pics, where to post them?
