    Uhhh... clever, but what's the point? I mean, that might prevent a little paint form getting rubbed off, but I don't give a crap about that. Is there any other point?

    If you dont have the hose holder on your fork (that the hose always pops out of) this is like the next best thing to gnocci el pesto. Watch that language or i'll have to have a talk with your mother.

    Whafe, not trying to hate on the housing guide, and that is one blingy bike you've got, so it makes plenty of sense to be super anal about everything on it, I just was wondering if there was any serious reason to do that.

    Edit: I should add that I've been in a bad mood because I havn't been able to ride in a week. I broke a bunch of stuff and don't have a bike right now. Sorry if I was a little pissy.

    Like I said, I can't ride. And it is very neat and tidy. You know what? Since I don't have anything better to do, I'm gonna go do that to both my bikes right now.

    A little paint rubbed off here a little there... A little ding here a little there... dent here dent there. Some people value the cosmetic condition of there bikes whether it is purely cosmetic or holds mechanical purpose - don't be jealous if your Wrangler jeans are not Armani suits.

    I understand that some people value tiny cosmetic detals more than others. I don't particularly care. If you do, fine. But I don't. All that matters to me, at least mostly, is functionality.

    Dude no problem, Joshing one another is fun. Remember my background is Ellsworth, the only button pushing I saw was Ellsworth against Turner or vise versa....... ...

    That saying is great. This is an ORDER, you must watch Pulp Fiction and tell me where and who says that in the movie...............

    When you use full runs of housing the constant "tink-tink" of cables against tubing can be irritating. I imagine this would help with the noise. Me likey.

    Looks nice, but I'll likely pee down my leg before I bleed a brake to put some tubing protection on a brake line. Seems like a lot of effort for aesthetics.

    You don't need to bleed the brakes to do that. Just put the zip tie through the tube one way, stick the hose in, and then put the zip tie back through the tubing around the hose. Clamp it down on your fork/frame/insert bike part here, cut off the excess, and go for a ride.

    Dude, sorry to say, if you think I bled the brakes etc to put that zip tie on, you are smoking too much crack..............

    It is a piece of p i s s to do................... Even you will b ebale to do it loco gringo...
    I just noticed that that looks more like shrink tube on the hose. Is that right? Wouldn't you still need to bleed to get that on? I see the little piece on the zip tie not needing bleeding, but it still looks like if you put the tube on the hose you would have to bleed the line. I guess my expression of what I would do before I bled the brakes to do that was a bit much, but I wouldn't bleed the brakes to do it. Please share how you got that tubing on the hose without bleeding. I would think it would take magic. Never the less - it looks nice and clean, but it doesn't seem worth the effort to have to bleed to do it. I understand you don't need the tube, but you don't need the any of it really. That said, I guess an o-ring could work too. I may try that.

    Use the imagination gringo

    put the tube between the fork & brake hose now wrap the ziptie around the fork & hose going through the tube, secure the ziptie behind fork leg & trim.

    It seems stupid to argue about this, but you act like I am a dumb ass. I am confused as to how to get the piece that is on the hose (vertically in the pic) without bleeding the line. I am waiting for someone to tell me how. The only way is to remove the line at the lever or the caliper. There is no other way. Imagination can't fix that.

    I just looked at the pics and it's a nice ride for sure, but why not route the hose inside the fork leg to keep it from getting crushed in a crash if you are doing any fancing hose tieing?

    *those cable housings are the hardest thing I ever installed on a road bike. When making sharpish bends, they totally screwed things up. The look nice though.

    Last note now that I paid attention that they are Magura brakes. The brakes had to be bled anyway, so that is when the pieces of tubing were installed.

    Certainly not hating on the bike. It really is nice.

    Thanks for posting this trick. I just tried it out on my fork / brake cable. I used to get a bit of cable rub on the fork, but now, after using the trick that you posted, I think it's all gone.

    You could always cut a slit in the tube, wrap it around the hose, and then do the whole ziptie deal. That would work. And I thought Maggies came pre bled.

    They do come bled, but they don't come withGoodridge hoses.

    Right. Obviously I wasn't paying enough attention. OK, he did need to bleed his brakes, and that's how the tube got on there. That settles things.

    It was a long way around the barn, but I, for one, feel much better.

    So the real story now fella's.........

    The piece of hose that is on there, was on form when I first installed the brakes, the hose comes with the kit, when it is in place, you then heat and it shrinks and holds on like sh!t to an army blanket................... So it was used on the other stead to stop frame rub. I need to take it off this frame now that I have this cable tie method in action....................

    Phew, was getting worried there, laods of energy spent on that....

    And for what its worth, they are not Goodridge cables, they are the braided Magura hoses, so there!!!!!! I am never without braided hoses on disk brakes. Had Goodridge hoses on the Uzzi, cant be beaten................

    Its all good then, now get back to Loco's Wine !!!

    Dammit - I saw the yellow sleeves at the levers and though they were Goodridges. I am glad this is all squared away, and I really am going to try it with an o-ring.

    Truth be known, I bet Goodridge make them for Magura....................
