That's the problem with hypothetical.
It rarely matches up to reality.

As @verktyg likes to remind us, don't believe everything you think!

Update: finishing steps

The handlebars have to come off and disconnect from the brakes. I'm using downtube shift levers on this build, which simplifies things. One way to disconnect the brakes is to use a quick disconnect.



Ritchey cable quick disconnect

All of my brake cable housing stops are slotted. This makes removing the bars and cables easy.



Fitting bike into the case was made easy by following Peter Weigle's example.

The Trico Iron Case is pretty simple. It comes with three pieces of foam, so you can just sandwich bike and wheels in alternating layers. Removing the fork-rack-fender assembly allows the front fender to stay on.



I'll add bubblewrap when it's time to ship



A quick check, cinch up a few straps, and looks like this will work.



I'll snap the rest of the straps when it's time to go.

In hindsight, do you think that the epoxy was worth the trouble? It seems to me that three rivets would be ample. Your thoughts?

About slotting cable stops: do you braze on un-slotted stops and then slot them afterwards with a cut-off wheel, or do they come slotted?

I'd say that the rivets weren't worth the trouble. Peter Weigle only used epoxy. Rivets may come loose.

I've got about 8 different kinds of cable guides and stops in my box of braze-on bits. You can get them slotted or unslotted. Unless someone wants it otherwise, I always used the slotted ones.

You can see a lot of different versions at Framebuilder Supply

I slot them after brazing, with small cutoff wheel.
