Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I use zip ties to run to my rear brack on my Fuji Track SE and it seems to work just fine with me. Using zip ties would be one of the cheapest ways to run a brake line to your rear wheel. I havent found a problem with using them. Also, they can be temporary until you make a final decision.

If you use small pliers to twist the leftover part off, they look very nice.

I want these if they are the right size...and I am thinking they are.

SO his real question here isn't how would you do it, because we now know you would go for cheap and ugly as hell, the question at hand is what is the OD of the TT on the Hour/Fuji Track?

ggg300 I am assuming you also don't have the bike in hand? I know if I was ordering I would want to have the guides and the brakes in hand when the bike shows up so that I can be rolling ASAP. I think that is why ggg300 is asking...so he can be ready for the bike and be riding within a day rather than waiting for parts.

On the other hand you could get the bike and whatever brakes your going to use and zip tie the cable housing to the TT until the guides can come in.
