How is the cable routed on this Kona Velocity stem?
Pulling the brake lever and it feels quite rough.
I thought there might be an internal roller, or the outer might pass through, but no, it appears to work using friction on the stem itself??

I run mine with a piece of the thinner inner outer cable, if you know what i mean. I found threading the outer cable through first helped to thread the inner through.

Seems fine when i pull the lever :)
