Does anyone still make/sell one of these? I'm updating my 1983 Univega GranTurismo with 8 speed Brifters and Deore XT 90's derailleurs. I have a set of 8 speed hybrid wheels on it with 38C tires, and of course a long cage Deore XT to handle the triple in front. I have kind of hit a snag however. Running the shifter cables is proving to be a task, since the bottom bracket guide is an above the shell type. Should I drill the shell and install a cable guide underneath? I really don't want to as that wouldn't help with the rear anyway. It has the chain stay stop on top. I also don't want to install a clamp on stop on the seat
tube for the FD, that would look kind of like a band aid..... The only solution I've come up with so far is to use some 3M double sided tape to hold on the guide under the BB. I've seen that stuff do some amazing things with cars which are in the elements 24/7.
My main question I guess would be... Is there a FD still made these days with a housing stop, that can handle a triple? If not I guess I'm back to the DS tape, hehe.,,,,BD
