hopefully sorted the one thing stopping the build - ferrules for the internally routed rear brake cable. I've ordered a few to see what fits best

If only you had seen this thread before! :D

I've had some from SJS cycles and some fro eBay. The ones at the front at Dia Compe and I think they will fit
