Front disc brake cable guides.
« on: May 19, 2013, 08:22:11 pm »
I'm building up a bike, and neither the (road) frame (with drop bars), nor the (disc specific Kinesis DC37) fork have any guides for the front brake cable (Avid BB7).  I could of course cable tie the cable to the fork leg, but I'd rather have a more elegant solution. Any ideas?

TIA

You can get cable tie-fixed cable guides. I'll warm up my Google-fu once I've had another spot of wine and get back to you.

Of course when I said cable tie fixed I meant sticky backed. Like this
