I need a couple of these type of plastic hose guides for a modern frame.
They are proving very difficult to track down.

Does anyone have any spare or know where I can get some?

Thanks

drill out cable stops and slip them in??? they look like the sections of the padding shim you get with Cateye light brackets :idea:

or can they be cable tied on tightly but will be strong enough so they dont crush hose or outer?

I have a small bag of clear plastic things similar to these that are used to join the ends of those annoying glow necklaces together. I picked the bag up as I thought they could be used for this very purpose but hadn't got round to trying it yet but I will find where I put them and I can send you some fer nowt and you can see if they are any use?

I'm sure I had a Giant vt2 with those on to keep the brake hoses in ,might be worth a call to the local dealer ?

I have found them so will take a pic as soon as I can although it might be Sunday before I get a chance to upload them.

After no luck finding these sold in small quantities anywhere, I have resorted to buying a bag of 50 from a supplier in Belgium.

So if anyone needs any then please get in touch.
