Cannondale brake grommets
Is there somewhere I can order the brake grommets used on the rear brake routing of an older Cannondale Tandem? I haven't found them anywhere.

Are you talking about the "cable bagels" or "cable donuts" that sit on the brake cable?

If so, your LBS will most likely have them. You could also do an Internet search on 'bicycle cable donuts' and you should find a number of sources.

Cannondale uses an oversize cable guide for the rear brake. It doesn't stop the cable end on your housing.

Check out pages 21 - 23 and the illustrations in the older Cannondale Owner's Manual linked off of my website:

If I understand what you're describing, they may be a Cannondale specific part. PN: A463/

That's what I need. I guess I have to go to a Cannondale Delaer.
