If you are considering new housing I would recommend taking a look at the Jagwire Elite Link system.

https://jagwire.com/products/diy-cable-kits

this is forms the cable housing from 10mm aluminum ferrules with a super slick nylon lining that you thread the ferrules onto and cut off the excess once you decide on the length.. I put these on my Carrera and have been very happy with them. They are a bit pricey but very good in my opinion.

They come with short sections of compressionless housing that run from the levers to just past the bar tape.

i believe there are one or two other vendors that offer a similar solution .

others on the forum may have pros or cons about this solution. I have been very happy them for both braking and shifting.
