in my view (and slightly caveated by the fact I installed my first top pull mech yesterday) that does not look right somehow. I have just installed an xt m738 top pull and cable comes out like that onto clamp bolt but it is a clean straight line. That cable in op seems to come across mechanism and I would be very surprised if that was the way the engineers/designers intended given rub, uncertain effects etc, it would be a bit "Heath Robinson". Is it actually resting on mech or is cable slack and just looks like it at the angle ?
The cable is snug in the mech and I am holding the cable tight[ish].
The cable angle isn't quite as bad as pictured, the mech was angled a bit, but with the mech parallel to the chainwheel it still looks looks pretty much like that.
It's got to be like that, the cable mounting on the mech is how Shimano intended[unless I am in need of the pointy hat with a D on it] and the cable stop on the frame is pointing directly down the back of the tube. The frame was clearly intended for a top swing.
If yours looks OK I guess the cable stop isn't in the same place.
