Got DMR Trailblade forks.. rigid, disc only..

They have a little doo-dah which looks like it's to hold a hose/cable clip/clamp..

Would this be right??

If so.. where can I get such a thing??

Seen clamps on ebay and online cycling shops but nothing that looks like it'll slot into this thing..

You can just kinda see it in this pic. . .

Yep your right about the hose clip. You should be able to use a cable tie fitted through the hole in the centre of the bracket.

There are plastic clips that fit over the hose and push into place. You can buy them from halfords.

Ooo not sure about purple and white.

You might have to search hard for those but my guess is they only come in black.

They are the same clips as the ones you would use on frames such as On One inbreads etc.

i presume you mean the plastic u shaped clips that go into the slots on either side of the guiding?

if so, ive only ever seen them in black
you could cable tie (various colours)

but if it HAD to be white or purple clips, consider vinyl dying them
