Hi all,

I finally bolted (all be it finger tight) the three parts of my new frame and i'm looking to crack on with the build but i noticed the frame doesn't have a cable guide / Stop for the front derailleur cable on the back of the seat tube, anyone know what they're actually called other than that 'cable thingy on seat tube' as that fails.... i'm guessing i can buy a bolt on one ?

What you're after is a bolt on gear cable stop. I'll have a google and see if I can find one.

It may run underneath the frame and come up? some do.....


otherwise run single - it's the way to go mate.

I bought a top pull front derailleur and there are no mounts at all, the one above will do it.

If it's top pull then it will probably still need a cable stop to pull against. It does on my bike anyway. If not then it another thing to stick in the toolbox and forget what it's for!
