i've recently picked up a basic aluminum frame for cheap. it's a no-name taiwanese frame that i'm planning on stripping the paint from and adding my own 'custom' touches before repainting with my chosen paint scheme. it currently is set up for the screw-on downtube cable stops, but i'm thinking of opening and profiling those holes a bit and running the cables internally. whether that's a good idea or not is beside the point, i just want to try it. the tinkering engineer in me wants to play around and braze up nice looking inlet/outlets for the cable. i also have a few other ideas that would require brazing or soldering.
Any additions or modifications i've got in mind are basically non-structural. Should I braze on the bits and pieces or would a clean solder job do just as well?
Any tips or info would be appreciated.
