    Internal cable routing issue - special plugs required?

    Hello,

    I am in the process of reviving a Dawes (http://www.dawescycles.com/) touring frame.
    However, I am a bit puzzled regarding the internal cable routing. As you can see on
    the picture the holes are rather big. So I suppose that I need special frame plugs.
    The Dawes customer service could not offer any help - so I am counting on you.
    Maybe these openings used to be some kind of a standard?!

    I appreciate all relevant comments or ideas

    I think you might have good luck contacting a rubber grommet company, providing the dimensions of your cable ports, and seeing if they have something that will fit or is close enough for an exacto knife.

    Someone recently posted pics of a frame that uses those same grommets. A Fuji, perhaps?

    Edit: found it - it is a Fuji. Scroll down and look at the Tiara in this thread

    @bbattle - Excellent idea! Thank you. I will definitely take this as an option
    @Ex Pres - Great piece of information - so at least it does seem that these
    drillings are somewhat standardized. I wrote shnibop on his wall since I am
    not able to send PMs - hopefully he'll drop me an email.

    I just found this thread, and I have exactly the same issue, and was wondering if anyone still has some of these plugs? I'm in the UK, but if there is no-one here, then I can pay for shipping from the US. I've had the frame (Dawes as well!) for years, but not been able to find any plugs, so they'll be a life saver! .....

    I think I need the ones on the left. Panasonic frame.
    Would it be possible to have them sent to Germany?
    Thanks for the help.

    Looks like Cinelli's cable grommets might work on that frame too. Lots of them for sale NOS at eBay for usually not too much.
    I noticed that Dawes wisely reinforced those oval openings on the TT, which is good, as some brand bikes that have similar internal routing holes had cracking problems.....

    Any chance I could still buy some?
    That'd be great.
