looks great, but no fun to route the internal cables throughTig

The aluminum Integrator version is also a major pain to route the cable housings through. I've run cables through both for team mates and am happy that I didn't buy them for myself. I had to use an old spoke to create the proper shape to get the housings run. Also, without any bar tape on the upper aero section, you will find it delivers a very rough ride to the hands, as well as no traction when wet. I'd go with one of the other shaped CF bars (FSA K-wing for just $229, Deda Synapsi if you don't compete in USCF races, etc.) over this one.

Just my real world observations and my .02 worth.

I've routed cables through Hotta TT bikes after cables have been pulled out (no internal cable guides) by plugging all the extra holes except the ones I need, using a piece of small string in one hole, and sucking it out the other end with a shop vac. Might work with bars, etc.
