    New question here. Looking for a brake part I can't remember the name of

    I put compressionless cables on my old Trek and upgraded to some SD5 Linears. Well the old cantis have the exposed brake lines so the routing for them won't fit the cables. I seem to remember a piece that would slide into those and allow you to use them as zip tie guides.

    Any know what the hell I am talking about?

    I know Problem Solvers makes a product called that Backstop that clamps around the tube and creates one or two cable stops so you can run housing from there to the v-brake noodle. I'm not sure if Problem Solvers also made the things you're talking about, but I remember that there is a product that bolts into split cable stops that allows you to run hydraulic line (or full cable housing, I suppose) along the old cable path.

    Ah - here's a link to JensonUSA, which conveniently has both products. HTH.

    Slow Eddie,

    Thanks for the link I just decided to stick with the zip ties. Once cut they are out of the way and aren't bother anyone. Plus this old beater is not winning any prizes. Thanks again.
