Could have the shop do it, but for a guy in the group they didn't bother to run the cables inside his bar despite it having internal routing. Thus defeating the purpose.

I need to learn to do this anyway on a tougher job. I've done it on the TT bike nicely, but it has the sweet internal cable housing tubes to guide them through the frame perfectly.
I rarely trust anyone else to do as good of a job as I can, even if it takes me longer.

There's a picture I saw yesterday of a brand new Sworks or something that an LBS built up. The rear derailleur cable is so long it's almost sticking behind the wheel.
