    DW Cable Guides

    This is picky -- nearly roadie-like you might say -- but has anybody figured out how to get the rear shift cable and brake hose TIGHT in the cable guide near the top of the down tube?

    I've got it working fine in terms of function, but a little slack always develops in both along the down tube, and the look, well she just isn't quite perfect.

    Perhaps if I just left it on the couch where it belongs!

    Thanks, but that looks like it relates to the front shift cable near the top/seat tube junction?

    I'm having trouble clamping the rear der cable and rear brake hose tightly at the top of the downtube, right near the head tube.

    Thanks!

    Sorry, know what you mean. Just looking at the pics of all the DWL Spots on here shows the same problems with cables. Just taken a look at my DWL and it has a slight bend in the cable where you describe. Don't fret, call it an arc in the cable (sounds better) and ride the Spot. You will soon forgive it.
