While it requires careful and patient set-up the results are well worth the extra time it takes. When the shift cables enter the frame, they are routed through an ingenious little cable carrier, then through the frame, making only 2 turns (one at the head-tube, and one at the bottom bracket). Cannondale was careful to make a wide radius at both points where the cables turn so that slow shifting and kinked cables become a thing of the past. The Cannondale Slice RS Headtube Cableguide allows cables to be routed through the top of the stem and into the downtube via its innovative cable stop and guide design. This is not only super-aero, but also allows the bars to turn freely, eliminating any effect of cable housing on steering.
