Is your guide not adjustable? Id get a new cable guide if not. The one I got was only a few bob, from chain reaction and can move from side to side. Or cut a slot in your existing one. That wire will make mincemeat of your tubing in no time.


Mine has the two hole option, seems like that is the solution rather than moaning about frame design. The original mech looked wrong to me but after inspecting mine, it still wears its original cable guide so the cable sits right whatever mech is used.

It's plastic, drill a new hole in your existing guide. 3 seconds job done.

For £1.99 i would rather have one that is less likely to fail, also the bolt would interfere with the brake cable.
