Brake lines?

How should I route my rear brake line, inside or outside the rear triangle?

A little better would be as frankenmike said - - right smack on top of your seatstay. Rotate your zip-ties around a quarter turn and you're gold.

Oh, and get your fire extinguisher serviced; it's past due.

i far prefer mine on the inside of the rear tri and the fork leg. get 'em zip tied down nicely and they are fine. no flapping around, nothing to get caught on anything, and IMO gives things a far more sano look.

No, its the old Jamis I used to ride.

As for the fire extinguishers we've got a non-expired one (as in around 2 months old) just in the door.

You answered that! I was pulling your leg, seeing as how the only ones I saw in the pic are disposables.

Oh, I have no idea if they are expired, but those were apparently there when we moved into the house 14 years ago.

See, in the summer, the old dining room is the is the bike shop. During the winter, it is storage space for some play thing (play as in the art form), so the bike stuff goes where ever it can fit, and the garage is also used for splitting wood, as we heat our house with a wood burning stove. So its not always this bad

On top of the chainstay. You won't really have to worry about catching on things or getting rubbed on by the tire.

Def. not enough line for that. But I'm about to go out to route it down the top of the seat stay.
