I just got some of these and put them on my bike where the cables were rubbing the frame. Cheap product to save an expensive frame!!!

I'll probably get some of these to eliminate the zip tied hydraulic lines for my rear brake:

maybe I'm missing something. What's to stop them from rubbing the frame instead of the cable housing?

You understand perfectly. They will still pick up dirt and rub the frame.Clear tape on the frame works.I have seen the recommendation to use a glueless pateh on the frame,but that looks bout as tacky as duct tape.

Thats the answer to my frame problem (On-One Gimp), i need to run gears on a singlespeed frame, its supposed to be able to take gears, but there are no cable mounts on the rear triangle.

How much are the 'Stick-on cable guides'? Ultimately, i need to know if they will work for gear cables (outer, black stuff), as i dont need them for anything else.


I REALLY need some of these, if you could answer my questions id be chuffed!

Cheers

I think you misread something.To my knowledge there are no 'stick on' cable stops or guides.

Hey A2, about the cable-guides for hydraulic brakes, they are #@$!%$

I bought these things for my two pair of Maguras, but the cable would`nt stay in the clamp...

I`m sticking with electrical tape now

Btw, they may work better for other type of brands,

Just last week I noticed that some of the new bikes at my LBS had clear protective material on the chainstay. I asked if this was something they had or if it was from the factory. They handed me a stip of peel-off type material that has a chainstay strip as well as smaller pieces for headtube, etc. Of course, tape would work just as well.

I've got the Lizard Skins Carbon Fiber patches on my bike. Clean the spot well with alcohol (the not fun kind) and they seem to stick well. They are pretty large though, so a single patch can be cut into 3-4 useful sized ones (they come in packages of 6). I also have the chainstay CF protector... however I consider it a design flaw when it comes flat to be put on a round chainstay... You still need to use zip-ties to hold it on and even then it doesn't want to stay flay against the frame. If you buy the chainstay protector, it comes with 2 patches... probably more than enough for the rest of your frame.
