What shifters are you using? Are they STIs where the shift cable runs away from the handlebars, or are they Ergos or barends where the cable runs along the bar? If the latter, you might want to try going to a "criss-cross" cable routing. I'll use the right/rear shifter as an example. You run the cable along the bar like normal, but then instead of going to the right cable stop on the frame, you run it to the left one. Then from that cable stop, you cross it underneath the downtube to go to the normal spot on the bottom bracket cable guide. This might or might not help you, but it will at least give you another option to explore. Don't try to get your cables to never touch one another or anything, because you'll never achieve that. Just aim for a smooth routing that minimizes cable friction while still allowing your bars to turn.
It is my belief that every person in this world has something to teach, and everything to learn.
