As many have already clarified, I was talking about "integrated" cockpits, as opposed to just internally routed cables. My 2008 tri bike was internally cabled and it wasn't breaking new ground then, but my 2014 Scott CR1 has all external routing. With so many bikes now boasting both hydraulic disc brakes AND electronic shifting (wired or wireless), it seems like having a cockpit without any cables visible would be pretty straight forward (without worries about kinking or binding steel cables). The biggest challenge I assume would be the routing from the front brake lever down through the fork to the caliper. At least the routing for the rear brake would go through the frame as internal cables typically do.
