my IRO Mia frame arrived a few days ago, and i encountered a dilemma when installing my juicy 5's. the cable guides underneath the top tube are spherical, and i'm not sure how i can go about installing the hoses inside the guides. :( will it be necessary to bleed my brakes to guide that hose through??! these are the first hydro brakes i've installed, and i feel pretty stupid not being able to figure this out. thanks!

Cable guides or hydraulic tubeing guides?
If the inner diameter on the guides isn't adequate for your hydraulic lines, you gan buy some adaptor gizmos that bolt into the guides and have the right diameter for the hydraulic lines.
Don't worry excessively about bleeding the brakes, it can be a little complicated to read about but, once you actually do it, the process is actually fairly simple.
