I just zip tie them to the gear cables.........works all right, but ye might need some of them sticky on stylee ones for the rear stays.........for forks, I have a zip tie with a rubber o-ring behind it to form two loops- allows some movement of the hose up and down........come to think of it, could use the same method on the rear stays as well.

My shimano hose guides, crafted from an ingot of purest black (plastic) arrived yesterday
Its made of 4 bits
A hose guide,
a squishy rubber expanding grippy bit,
a plastic end bit with a tab to locate in the cable slot,
and a philips head screw to clamp it all up tight
Here's one fitted

I've not used the 2nd one on this frame but I've tried it on my Moho and will be buying another set to tidy that up a bit :D

I saw them when they were in packs of 2 or 3????

The Shimano plastic jobbies are what I used on a mate's 'dale as they were black. Good quality too.
