These are tempting. Online calculator reckons £15.50 import duty, so total cost about £30. Could sell them £1 a pair though...

Got a small bag full off a friend of a friend ages ago for my Yeti,
when I came to build it up found the cable guides/holders were designed to take 6mm :oops: making these bad boys redundant

are these step downs to go on 6mm outer cable but accomodate 6mm frame bosses ? if so i need some. As the frame bosses on my marin is only big enough for 6 mm without ferrules.
