    2012 Fox Float 29 cable guide

    I just got a new bike with this fork. Some models have the cable mount that screws in the front...mine has a small slot (under the arch) that looks like it is made for a zip tie. Is that what I should use for it? Or is there a better clamp that fits there?

    Thanks.

    With a 2012 fork, you should have the threaded hole in the front for the screw-in guide. Post some pics.

    +1. My Fox from '10 had the screw in guide; wasn't aware that any Foxes had a zip tie slot. I've got an old Reba with that set up, but never seen a Fox with that. Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough?

    That's odd. Never seen that before. My current '10 F29 and '13 Float(as well as other Fox' I've owned/worked on), have all had the threaded guide.

    Maybe it's an OEM thing?
