Cable routing, Rather than use a solid circle of metal they used little "wings" that bend to wrap around the cables. I'd never seen this before this bike.
For the AO-8, however, they added a few "extras". The down-tube shifters are plastic with a thin metal sheath wrapped around 3 sides, I have actually seen this on a few other entry level bikes but the higher level Peugeot's like the Course (UO-10) had metal DT shifters.
The really surprising place I found plastic was in the bottom bracket bearing cages, also something I had never seen before.
as opposed to forged rear drops.
