In-tube Cable Guides

See the cable guide thingies in the top tube in the pix. Anyone know a source for those?

TIA
Charlie

...I have looked for them a few years back, and had no luck finding anyone who had them in stock.

gimme a minute.

I was trying to source those lil REG cable holders that tidy up your cables where they cross over your stem.

I think I searched ebay for "swivel bike brake cable guides, vintage" and I saw some of these pop up.

One minute please….

grrrrrr
it was a "can't-sleep-rabbit-hole."

I found one guy selling a giant display card selling the REG ones of different colors including yellow for my DeRosa and orange for my Merckx, but he was selling the giant display card/all of them for $179 (some 40 bits) and I didn't need all that.

I remember looking at his "other items available" and saw the interior cable guide bits.

More time please

I asked Gios but that was just a few minutes ago.

Perhaps a group buy of the giant display card?

Just a thot

Many thanks for the efforts. I could find nothing.

Any of these work for you? They're in Singapore. Don't know about shipping.

...back when I was looking for them, to paint and build up a frame with that sort of brake cable routing, I found some from Asia. But when I ordered them, they never showed up. That was 5-6 years ago.

...that does have a lot of options. I think I never found that source when I was looking. I just ran the housing without them, and don't ride that bike in the rain.

Here you go.....

Why put a machined piece on when you can use these?

Those look Great! I got two sets. A dab of silicone seal will make for the perfect fit if it needs it.

Make Thanks for the link! Never would have thought to call them that !
Cheers

A first I scratched my head because my Gios also has internal cable routing, but the guides are brazed on. Then I realized my bike was a “Compact Pro”. I’ve never seen a “Compact” before.
