80's Cannondale T500 cable guides?

So these are a bit strange. Looks like two little plastic nubbies on guide bottom hold each in place. I need 4 of them Does anyone know of a source? NYC convenient would be a huge plus.

Thanks,
Danny

Not sure where you'd go in NY, but when I needed some I just found an LBS that was a Cannondale dealer, and they had them. The plastic nubs have a plastic "expander nail" that you tap down with a tiny hammer (or sumthin') to make the nubs flare out inside the hole: sort of like a moly in drywall...if you get my drift.

Danny, most C'dale dealers stock them. (at least around here)
If not, then go directly to C'dale, they should be able to help.

Tip on installing them...find a small diameter metal tube just slightly larger than those plastic pins. Then find a metal rod* that fits snugly into the tube.
*I used a short piece of steel welding rod. Comes in many diameters.

Now, place the metal tube over the pin on the guide and slide the metal rod into the top of the tube.
Tap carefully to install the guides pin.

If you just try to hammer the guides plastic pins, they will likely bend. and then it's a PITA to get it in after that.

Thank you both for the info and Dr. D for the cogent install warning. Probably saved me a bit of aggravation and some money, as well as that terrible return trip to the LBS.
