Cannondale Cable Guide

Did a quick search and it seems like the old Cannondale cable guides are no longer in production. Any suggestions as to what can used besides a zip tie? Are there any metal clips that will fit this top tube?

'86 SR400

I think folks are SOL on those as Cannondale has stopped producing them. There are several threads on this. I think someone was kicking the idea around for seeing if they could be produced but I do not think the idea has progress from much more than the idea.

If these ever get back in stock I'm going to buy a lifetime supply. Hmmm, maybe everyone else already did and that's why they are no longer available.

You might try getting a brake cable guide, painting it to match (either with Testor's or nail polish) and then JB Welding it in place.

Best alternative is a Jagwire hydraulic brake cable mount- it uses a zip tie and has a double sided tape adhesive mount on the bottom. AND they come three to a package.
Aesthetically...not overly objectionable.

When Cannondale made bikes, they used local New England contractors for making small parts. There is a decent chance that you may be able to find a huge quantity of those things in the back of some shop. I scored several tubes and a complete catalog of CAAD tube drawings from a contractor that got burned. I am not sure if bankruptcy records might be a place to start.

There are nice stainless steel cable clips available. Some are nicely engraved.

That'd be nice, but I don't think so from what I've discovered to this point. I think the best alternative so far is to be found in the #6 reply with the top tube guides. It may take a drill and a pop rivit(s), but will end up a better piece and could be done prior to refinishing.

True, especially if you can find one long enough to cover both top tube holes.

This one: https://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-...-TOP-TUBE.html would work if it was longer (note that they have been out of stock on this for a while)
