i have a braided hose for the rear disc on my 99 FSR.
need to guide it, but obvioulsy cant route it through the existing cable guides (would need to disassemble the brake) :evil:
so, aftermarket cable guides - i've seen a few, but they all seem to cater for small fork tubes/top tubes etc...my FSR has a massive extruded square box section down tube, so cant wrap the rubber bands round that are supplied with some cable guides (like this one: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/m:part-disc-brake-hose-guide-for-suspension-prod17203/ )
with the exception of the magura ones which screw into the cable guide itself, the route on my FSR isnt really optimal for that, so i need to create my own.

what have people done with theirs? this braided brake cable seems to be quite slippery, so i need to anchor it securely....:?
