How 'bout the same thing for $9.99

Unless you catch them on a day when everything is free shipping, then you might need to bundle with some other things you need.

Out of stock, but fortunately I have many other bikes to ride in the meantime. I will keep my eye on the ad, thanks!

I may be able to find a regular old school-type cable stop band in my spare parts bin.

Lemond,
There is a pair of these laying on top of my computer waiting to get the info from you. Since your phone doesn't work, perhaps you should PM me. MH

Are you also painting the frame? If so, you might want to consider getting some braze on stops. Probably more expensive, but look cleaner on a freshly painted bike. If you have a frame builder in your area, then it might be much less expensive than having to go out and get everything yourself then having to have a welder with no bike experience braze them on.

Keep in mind that there are two versions (well three actually, maybe four) of the Shimano downtube cable stops. Depending on the size of your downtube you will want either the the concave version (steel frame) or the flat backed version (aluminum frames). There is also the version with the little ratcheting lever rather than a threaded adjusting knob which may come in a flat backed version, too.

My Trek 660 used the concave stops while I had to seek out a pair of the flat stops for the Cannondale SR500, both built with Shimano 105 5800. Shimano has long since stopped providing these with their groupsets for obvious reasons but my LOOK KG386i built in 2004 using Shimano Ultegra 6603 used the included pair of cable stops with ratcheting lever (though I was never really fond of that lever).
