Anybody have any creative ideas for cable straps?

Just wondering as I just put a new shoe lace on mine (orange on purple frame)

Thats hot. Why did frame companys.. some of them stop putting the brake cable mounts on the frames?

Save weight, production costs, and a cleaner look. One zip tie at rthe head tube looks waaaaaay better than a cable guide imo

nice, I have a checkered bandana so might hit that up once my lace starts to fray.

True, they should just have removable one as slandered with frames with brake mounts.

rip out some of ur hair and use that to tie down the cable. hahaha jk. ruber band, zip tie, or those green twist ties u get in the supermarket, that would give u a unique look haha

Use leather bondage straps. or barb wire.

ask your bike shop if they have zip ties, they're bound to have them, mine does

for a seat stay mount. you could cut it then use a heat gun or flat iron heated up. to melt it together... should be good enough. would look so nice. every one would ask how it was on there too.
