When I replaced them on my Dawes, I just bought a length of 20mm black plastic conduit from B & Q.

Cheap, cheerful, and it works...  :thumbsup:

Block & Quayle, you say?  I may have to pay them a visit, as the untubed chain on my bike saws into my calf muscle when it's on the big chainring.  Clearly that's a fault with the bike, rather than my legs being too big.  :-[

Hmmm, I think not.  I only met you very briefly, and I noticed they were lovely!

The teflon tubing is lighter and easier to flare than the conduit.

Yes, teflon would be my ideal.  I'll never EVER order from Kinetics again.
