Yalla! Cable Routing
The cable routing on the Yalla! is completely external to simplify the installation and maintenance of the brake and rear derailleur. However, there are several details to pay attention to during assembly to guarantee unrestricted movement of the rear suspension and avoid damage or rubbing to the frame or components.
If you ride with your rear brake on the right, then we recommend to route both the brake and rear derailleur cables on the left side of the head tube, and secure them with the cable routing piece for two cables. Inside the cable routing piece it is marked with which cable goes where - 4mm is for the rear derailleur and 5mm is for the brake hose.
If you ride with your rear brake on the left, then we recommend to route one cable each side of the head tube. The brake hose can be on the right of the head tube, secured with a single cable clamp marked 5mm, and the rear derailleur cable can be on the left of the head tube, secured with a single cable clamp makered 4mm.
To avoid damage and rubbing of the cables on the frame, make sure that the cables and hose are assembled without being twisted.
The brake hose and gear cable must both form a small S-bend above the bottom bracket and also the brake hose at the rear of the chainstay. This is necessary to ensure complete freedom of movement of the rear triangle.
We recommend mounting the cables and hose with the shock disassembled, starting from the rear of the bike and working forwards, in order to be able to check the freedom of movement of the rear triangle and that you have enough of an S-bend to handle the full range of rear wheel travel.
Cable ties are provided with the frame. For the rear derailleur, there are 3 mounts on the underside of the right chainstay, 1 at the chainstay yoke under the main pivot, and 2 at the base of the down tube in the recess.
For the brake hose, there are 2 mounts on the underside of the left chainstay, 1 at the chainstay yoke under the main pivot, and 2 at the base of the down tube in the recess.
There are 2 bolt on cable routing pieces to clamp the rear derailleur cable and brake hose on the underside of the chainstay yoke. These will securely define the amount of cable or hose along the chainstay. The 3 bolt on cable routing parts on the downtube will then securely define the amount of cable around the bottom bracket, as well as keep the cables secure on their journey up to the head tube.
