Cannondale Bottom Bracket Cable Guide with single (rear) shift cable only?
I have a Cannondale Trail SL2. The bottom bracket cable guide is a piece of plastic that guides both the front and rear shifter cables. I removed my front shifter and the cable guide popped out and broke the next time I rode the bike. The cable guide appears to not fasten to the frame in any way, there is a 1/4" diameter hole in the base of the bottom bracket but it is not threaded. The hole only gives the guide location and it appears you need both cables in place to hold the guide in place. Once the front cable was removed, the guide as allowed to slide about on the bottom bracket freely.
Other people have had to have already met this problem and solved it. How?
Get a new one. Looks like you possibly broke the little nub:
Original Cannondale bottom bracket double cable guide. Pops in and stays secure with the plastic nub. Works on frames like CAAD9 and other aluminum frames.
The bikes I have with these guides all utilize screws that screw into the BB shell.
