No rear derailleur cable stop

Can I get away with running the outer cable housing all the way from the cable guides underneath the bottom bracket shell to the rear derailleur taped at a point to the chain stay?

Asking as I've just had the chain-stay fixed and the guy didn't ask if I would like to have stops brazed on, I assumed he would do it and annoyingly it's now been painted and so it is too late to fit them without ruining the paint work.

You could do it, but that's going to be a pretty expensive piece of shift housing you have to purchase!

Why not go with a clamp on cable stop?



Of course it's not as clean, but better than using full gear housing.

If the shifting is Friction, you can compensate for any housing compression loss in the shifting

with your hands, on your shift levers.. by feel..
