From the instructions that came with my Kestrel 200 SCi:
Your Kestrel frame comes with a...length of cable housing pre-threaded through the top tube. Insert your cable through the...housing, then remove the housing, leaving the cable threaded through the top tube. Your own housing may then be fitted back over the cable.
(And if you remove the housing before fitting a cable):
Put a 45 degree kink about three inches from the end of a piece of stiff wire (brazing rod if you have it, though a wire coat hanger will work) and thread it through the top tube, watching at the far end of the tube. When you see the leading end of the wire line up with the hole in the top tube, twist the wire until the kink pops through the hole. Then thread your housing over the wire.
