Converting Mech Disc to Hydro Discs

ok, i have a Cannondale F900 which had Mech discs, and i now have Hydro discs, but on the frame it has the little gromits for the cable stops and not for the full hydro lines.

any ideas other than just reaming it out? or is that the only way.

The parts that you need are available in the QPB catalogue so most any LBS can get them for you. They're called bolt-on guides for bolting onto conventional cable stops.

I have these on a bike and they seem to work just dandy



They have them at jenson USA.

I contemplated altering the frame via dremmel and I am glad I didn't. This way, no chance of buggering it up.
