hi my brake cables are rubbing against my frame and ruining the whole look, i dont like the patches that are just stickon because they are tacky lookin. anyone for any ideas?
if we need trees for the air we breathe..

then how come when we hit the tree it takes the air out of us??... ( trees...the selfish b***erds want it back!! )

    what colour is your frame? if its black just stick abit of black tape down i did it on my norco a-line which was black and you could barely notice it

    Not much you can do really, i used old inner tube cut to shape but they still rubbed through that.

    I used some black sticky foam and stuck it on cable quite discreet and its on the cable.

    Clear patches here too, full set for a fiver from Halfords (4 small, 4 large + chainstay) bargain. Actually covered both my bikes with it, my FSR is 6 weeks old and has rubbed through to bare metal in 2 places already. Definitely worth it!
