    On One Dirty Disco Frame - problem with cable housing stop

    Hi Guys,


    I have a problem with a new dirty disco frame... After installing the front derailleur and swichting the chainring for the first time I noticed a problem with the cablehousing stop on the seat tube. If you have a look on the inside of the seat tube it seems like you can only see the lower "rivet". Is that as it is supposed to be?.
    Is there a way to place a new cable stop or should I just fix it with a cable tie or does the frame has to be replaced?


    Cheers!

    This sucks, it appears the upper rivet is broken or missing and the other will eventually break, leaving you without a cable stop for the front derailleur.

    I do not recommend a band-aid fix like a zip tie, nor do I think the frame needs to be replaced. I think it could be repaired, but the first thing to do is contact On-One and see what they have to say.

    Good luck, keep us updated!

    Hi Guys,

    here the response from on one:

    Hello Henri

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    I have spoken to my mechanic who tells me the following.

    "rivets can be drilled and it can be re-riveted on with a bit of araldite on it to help make it a stronger bond"

    If you have a local bike shop nearby that would be able to perform this i will credit your account for the workshop time.

    Kind regards

    I checked the rivet and it was broken in the middle. So there was no need to drill it out because you could get it easily out with a tweezer. I bought a rivet tang for 14 and did it by myself -> see the pictures below








    Cheers

    Good job. Keep that tool handy. Cable stops are riveted on all but the highest-priced carbon frames. I've got a DD and i'm happy with the quality.
