my brake cable housing runs right down the top tube of my bianchi road bike. IM putting new cables/housings on it and i have no idea how the cable routes...

My rear brake is my right hand and comes out of the sti shifter along the aero style bars under the tape and i need to know if you are suppose to route that around the front of the head tube or just come down the right side into the braze ons. Going around the head tube provides less bend but the front end looks sloppy at that point. I have no idea how it was originally.

It goes around the front of the headtube. Make sure that you cut the housing long enough that you can turn the bars freely through their whole range of motion. It may seem sloppy to have it hanging out there, but that is the way it is supposed to be for pratical reasons.
