I was intending to use a 'collar' stop under the h/set locknut, but having put the forks on, it turns out there's only just enough thread for the actual locknut to go on, without anything else spacing it out :x Bearing in mind the chances of finding a decent but affordable stem with built-in routing are slim, is there any other option? (apart from changing the forks :roll: )

I was tempted by those, but being a bit of a tart, I didn't want to lose the purple ano triangle hanger at the front :oops: also, at some point I'd like to run some RC30s so really need a headtube or stem solution

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'm sorted now - if the latest cable hanger doesn't work out I'll let you know!
