since you are the builder , so able to think 'fabricate' rather than just shopping,
using the particular tube that is automobile hydraulic brake lines use
would not be compressed, lengthways , and in all the portions of your cable run that does not have to flex
that serves well as housing over the cable, between stops you put on the frame to receive
the housing that is needing to flex, there the shifter housing a bundle of lengthways wires
also compression resistant can go there ..
Of course Rohloff resolves much by their pull/pull cable system, and having the gear sequencing in the hub.
single cable shifting is pulling against a return spring.. sluggish returns can
be overcome with a beefier return spring,,
I did a couple booster springs on my Sturmey Drum brake hubs ,
adding a return force that overcame housing interior cable drag..
