    5 Spot, cable guides and braided hose question

    While I'm waiting on my frame I'm getting together the last few things for my build.

    I have some braided hoses I'd like to use but I don't know if the Spot guides allow for full width hoses along the top tube. I don't really want to be drilling my guides out either so what solutions are you guys using?

    I've seen some guides that fit into the normal guides that allow for full width cables



    or



    Would these be ok?

    I'm confused. Do you want to run full-length cable housing for the derailleurs in addition to your brake's hydraulic line, or are you just asking how to attach the hydraulic brake line?

    How to attach the brake line.

    Details on full length gear cable too would be interesting. Is it a worthwhile job?

    Use zip ties (cable ties) to attach the hose. There is nothing to drill or mess with. There is a shallow channel you lay the hose in and thread a zip tie around the guide to hold the hose in the channel. Done.

    You said you didn't want to drill the stops for the der cables/housing, so just use the existing stops and don't run full housing unless you think you need a change over time.

    ...worth a thousand words....

    What TS said. Lay it on the center channel and run a zip underneath the little bridge:

    Faster is better, even when it's not.
