I thought I would share a recent discovery I made whilst trying to re route the cables on my Glory. Stick on cable guides, some of you may already be aware of these but for those that aren’t they do exactly what they say on the tin and remove the need for gaffer tape, zip ties and needless frame destruction through cable rub. This is the only store I have found that actually stock them, although if anyone else has other link feel free to shout up

No sticky pad, just cable tied to your frame.

Hellfrauds do some thing similar IIRC, about £3 for 4.

Better than just cable ties on their own as you can remove the cable from the frame easily without having to cut & replace normal cable ties.

I use a couple of the Hellfrauds ones on the underside of my top tube for the hose of my reverb.

Cuts out cable rub from said hose too.

All of the sticky things on this thread seem to be similar with 3M sticky pads. I go these ones

They work perfectly well Smile
