Cable guides?

I'm putting an internal geared hub on a fixie frame so there are no cable guides brazed on there.
I've seen those stick-on/cable tie solutions (the hub even came with something like this), but I'm looking for something a bit higher class... maybe a polished stainless steel strap or something along those lines. Anything out there like this or do i need to rummage around at the local home depot?

HI...

Jag wire have the stuff u need also. Other solution is go to nova cycles and get the cable guides u need and use epoxy to glue them to the frame or use rivets if u like.

Thanks.

Similar situation here.
How strong / good is JB Weld? I'm going to want to paint over the cable guides afterwards so it would stink if the guides broke off.

Like many things, it's as good as your preparation.
