I think a cable cover would be too thick, but it shouldn't be a problem to find some sort of plastic (?) tubing to do the job. It won't stay in the frame, so I suppose it won't matter what material it actually is. We'll see...

Yep, for christs sake don't pull the cable out without sending through a sleeve. I'm saying this because I've already done it 3 times on mine even though I know not to. Then you fiddle round with your fingers in the head set for an hour or so shouting abuse at the bike until the cable finally finds it's way out again... :lol: :lol:

he simpliest thing you can do is to insert a slim metal wire ( enough to be stiff) trough the tube , once you have it out at the other end tight the the rear end of the wire to the cable and pull it till the other end. i had to do it with my lts and it worked.


About the stickers, i´ve got these they are identical excepting two things
LTS-DH, the L to be replace for an S
GT logo a little bit bigger than the STS original.

This is the link to get them in case:
