    Really Small Tubing that the Der. cable runs though at the bottom bracket.

    Does anyone know where I can get the tubing that you put over the front der. cable as it goes through the bottom backet guide and then up though the frame to the front der.? I have tried to find it. The LBS says "it comes with the bikes" and they do not have it. It is smaller than any tubing at a hardwear store.
    Thanks,
    Erik

    In one of my frames, I used a piece of the smallest cable housing I could find. Then I stripped the coating off of it and it fit perfectly. I had to tap it in with a rubber mallet, but then it is permanent and It works great.

    I second that emotion

    I have bits of old housing that are too short for much. So every once in a while I'll strip the outer linings (plastic and wire) and pull out the teflon (?) inner sheathing for this use.
