Hey Roy,

Tough one this, I went with the retrofit guide offered by Rohloff itself with tie-wraps, and it su#@s. It allows way too much freeedom to the cables:

the gutter of the Ringle bottlecage is the perfect guide lower down.

Idworks bikes uses nice twin small guides that actually clamp each cable and fit with a bolt in the middle, but you need fittings in the frame to bolt onto which my bike does not have. With crud catcher mounts under the downtube you'd be in business.

I hope you 'll get the perfect reply so I can copy it ;-)

Enjoy!!

My Brooklyn's don't have any cable guides and I hate cable ties on bikes with a passion!

Chain reaction do some MPart adhesive stick guides;

that work ok, also RS (industrial supplier) do some velcro 'cable ties' that arn't bad either, you can get them quite tight to stop the cables moving around, and they're cheap.
