Ray, Sounds like you have a Pinarello "Funny" bike with the 24" front wheel. Try the plastic sheething that comes inside cable housing to help guide and protect the cable through the frame and bottom bracket. It is a time trial frame, so they probably expect the second ring to be bigger than a 39 -try a 42.
