    Securing cables on Scalpel under shock pivot

    My cables are ratling around quite a bit under my shock pivot in the this photo. The manual shows a cable guide made to secure them, however mine did not come with one. What are you using to secure your cables?

    Mine came with clips to couple the housing together and I'm using the soft side of adhesive backed velcro under the top tube to keep the noise down.

    be careful of any rub under the top tube, I shortened my rear der cable housing,( the shorter housing must have changed the way it moved with the susp....) and with a couple weeks of riding had worn almost through the bottom of the top tube!!! I almost had a heart atttack when I noticed it.

    Velcro is very useful for cable management.

    You can cut strips of the loop-side Velcro and stick directly to areas of cable that rub or slap the frame.

    You can also stick the loop and hook sides back to back to create a Velcro strip that you can wrap around the cables (loop side on the outside) - I found this very useful on the cables above the shock on my Scalpel - this minimized cable contact with the frame while keeping things nice and quiet.

    I can barely get my mouth around it.
