    Attaching small Aluminum parts

    How do you guys attach small aluminum parts like brake cable guides? All of the frames I have looked at are very neat. They are not welded. Can you braze these on?

    Bump to the top.

    Anyone want to share your methods?
    I was told by a non bike welder that I could probably use some Gorrila Glue or Epoxy and be just fine since there is very little stress on the guides.

    Zip tie hose guides? I'd get the adhesive ones. they have a bigger surface
    to stick them down
    those in the picture? , tack weld them on. or tool up to spot weld.

    .. or make up a separate piece, of steel [maybe stainless, silver-] braze it to a plate,
    then Pop-rivet the plate onto the aluminum tube.
    Cunningham WTB founder did that 25 years ago.

    I have a frame that was made by Cannondale at home that has these. They do not have welds but seem to be glued with some mechanism. I am not sure if they could be brazed on or not.
