    Name that Part

    I'm not sure what to call it so I can't seem to find a previous thread.

    I'm looking for the rubber cable guide that fits under the bottom bracket to route the derailleur cables. Any help is appreciated.

    cable guide? I know what your talking about, I think most others would too. Why is a specific name important?

    I'm trying to find a supplier for it. It seems like a stupid part to be looking for. It wasn't included with my build kit.

    I think what your are looking for are called 'bottom bracket guides' or 'bottom bracket cable guides'. Extremely common, every LBS should have dozens laying about. They can be found in the QBP (Quality Bicycle Products) 2005 catalog on page 594.

    That's what I've been searching for and no dice. It seemed like the logical name for it. Thanks for your help folks. I haven't been to the LBS in ~9 hours so I guess I'll have to make a trip tomorrow.

    campagnolo either currently makes or used to make a steel one...I'm currently looking to buy one of those steel ones myself. At the least it looks like the cable shouldn't bind so much when the bik gets all nasty.

    A couple of bucks on ebay got me one. It came with some crap to convert Dura-Ace down tube shifters to STI. I agree that every shop must have a few lying around.
