    Default Electronic-only steel frame conversion

    If one has a steel frame which is electronic only - i.e. it doesn't have cable guide bosses - is it right to assume:
    a. that such bosses can, in theory, be brazed on;
    b. that in practice doing so would probably necessitate a complete strip and respray; and
    d. that therefore the whole process is probably uneconomic?

    My apologies if this is a stupid or very basic series of questions.

    TIA

    Your assumptions above seem correct. However somebody somewhere makes clamp-on cable stops for both the down tube and the right chain stay - like cheap bikes used bitd - that would allow for cable routing without resorting to braze-ons. The sheer jankyness of such a solution will be your cross to bear.
