FSA K-WING internal cable routing

Hi Guys,

Has anyone got FSA K-wing handlebars and do you have any problems with the internal cable routings ? My problem is that the exits seem to be to high so that the cables go in an upward direction as the exit the routing then I have to bend them back down towards the derailers. The result is I can't completely hide the cables. The bars were installed by my LBS. The only way to get around it, as I can see, is to dismantle everything and run the cables under the bars, by-passing the internal routings. Anyone got any ideas ?

Hello and welcome to the Forums.
If you take your question to either the Road Cycling or Mechanics sub forum they will be glad to hook you up with an answer. I don't have any experience with the K-wings, but by your description, I'm gonna' say that you are right- you will have to unwrap the bars, re-set the cables, then wrap again.
But again, the guys on those other sub forums can set you on the right path.
