    FD cable position

    I have a 105 FD that I am reattaching the cable to. There is a small tab beside the pinch bolt on the inside of the fd. Does the cable go between the tab and bolt or over the top of the tab then under the bolt?
    Thanks ...I should have noted it before removing the cable.

    Over the top of the tab.

    +1. It doesn't look like much of a difference but it's important that the cable be routed this way.
