Can anyone here who owns (or has seen) a cx100 frame, tell me how the cables are routed?

I'm looking at the 2002 KHS catalogue and the picture would suggest that the rear derailleur and rear brake cable are top mounted (running along the right side of the top tube) and the front derailler cable is routed along the down tube and under the bottom bracket (i.e. a bottom pull front derilleur). The front brake is routed to a head set spacer cable stop to suit a front cantilever brake. The rear has a cable stop mounted on the shock to allow a rear cantilever brake. Hope this helps...

Rear Der. and Rear brake are along the drive side of top tube. The front Der. is under the bottom bracket like a road bike.
Like so...The Walrus

Sorry, just the rear brake/rear derailleur cables in this shot. Front cable routing is basic road style.

Thanks everyone!

I was mostly just interested in the front derailleur set up.

But about this picture, is that the team st frame?
I haven't seen that on the web site at all. Do they still make it?
Perhaps not...The Walrus

The website page for the Cyclocross frame describes the Team edition as a 2001 model, so it's likely out of production. That doesn't mean they don't still have some in stock. If you're considering this frame, be sure to check out the thread from a month or so ago.

This is what the whole thing looks like--I still think the white fork is a bit much. Makes it look like an ice cream truck...
So, So far what do you think......jrm

How do you like the 71 degree headtube angle? Tire clearance ? road ability? thanks..

So far...The Walrus

I'd still apply my comments from the earlier thread. I haven't found anything unsatisfying about it. The slackness of the head tube angle isn't particularly noticeable; the steering's not as quick as a Jake, but it's not sluggish. I never seem to have trouble going down singletrack with it. The stability and tracking is actually a blessing, especially when I'm screaming (sometimes literally) down a steep fireroad at speed. I'd call the tire clearance good, up to 35c or maybe 38c. I once had some 40c All Terrainasaurus tires on it, and they were fine, but that's only because there's no mud anywhere around here. I've ridden it on a number of 60-75 milers that were 50-50 pavement and fireroad/singletrack, and it was great. Only real problem with the bike is the urge I keep getting to see what it would be like with one of those 700C Manitou forks...
