    '11 Wilier cable rub...

    On my '11 Gran Turismo, the cables cross in front of the head tube and rub along the side of it. I noticed rub marks and applied a piece of clear packing tape to protect. Is it a concern that the cables may rub the paint off? I guess I could use a nylon tie to bind them where they won't rub. Any one else have this problem?

    Same deal here, different bike...common. I also used a small piece of clear packing tape and no worries.

    Yep, typical. LBS had some thicker clear pieces that were placed at the rub spots. Lizard Skins also makes a kit with clear or carbon fiber look pieces but it's a bit pricey for what it is.

    Similar issue on my mountain bike but I used pieces of left over automotive clear bra material to protect the finish.

    You can just buy those clear patches made specifically for this purpose at your LBS.

    the best solution is shorten your FD and RD cable housing and make it even at center of head tube,problem solve and looks nice too,,
