Yep thats right...sure I have one in a packet somewhere..
I stick a pic up if I can find it.

Alternatively..drill out the cable stops...remove the banjo unions/olives etc..and feed though...Then just use a solid outer cable if you go back to rim brakes

so far all i know is they are made from 'black' and i didn't want silver :)
i'll update you when they arrive
they look to clamp into your cable stop, with a tab that goes into the cable slot to keep it still, then a bit possibly expands to fit?

the jagwire are similar to your shimano but they clamp round the cable and fit into the guide the same as your purest black :lol:
