Where to find threaded cable guides?

Hey guys, bought a new frame that doesn't have a welded cable guide on the underside of the top tube. I was wondering if any of you happened to know where I could find one that Photo is threaded with the little guide mounts. I already looked and the only one I found was in a whole brake kit which I don't need.
Thank you!

Gyro tabs fit, you can buy em on ebay pretty cheap, and they come as a pair, so you'll have a spare one

I was thinking about using one. How do I get that threaded bolt to fit though?

What do you mean?

Just buy a gyro tab and get a barrel adjuster, you probably have one off your old frame!smile

Oh, so the frame doesn't have a lug to bolt it to? Hmmmm. Do you need a cable stop, or just a guide? The only way you can get a cable stop really is to have one welded on. If it's just the guide you're missing, just use a zip tie, or something.

Actually, if you've got chainstay brakes, and the chainstays are long enough, you could drill a hole through the seat tube, put the barrel adjuster there, and have your yoke/straddle cable the other side of the seat tube. It's a very tight fit for chainstays shorter than 14" though

Here is a picture of where the guide screws in. You think that a regular gyro tab will work? Photo

Ok. I have the cable stop screw, so I suppose that the screw threads into the gyro tab and everything should work?

Yeah, just bolt the gyro tab on, then put the barrel adjuster in

Thank you Steve, love how helpful you are. I am going on eBay and ordering a set of tabs. Thanks!

Ha, I almost bought this exact frame on the museum. Ended up buying other stuff from the same seller.

If you want to use a gyro and run dual cables buy one of these if you can find it Photo

Yeah dual cables or go home lets be realcool

But I believe this guy is using standard y-cables...

Drill a hole in your seat tube and bolt a London mod to it, let’s be real. Far too much inner cable showing otherwise. Better still, drill two holes and use flexible brake noodles as cable guides.

That would be cool! I've got alot of inner cable showing... but that's just less friction right? Lol

Minimal, lol. Years ago, I came up with this and it worked great. Best working brakes I ever had.

So the cable overlaps the other cable?

Yeah they cross over for a much better pull on the arms.

I've never thought about this but now that I see it, this seems like the obvious setup for brakes. If I had brakes I would go set them up like this immediatelygrin

I actually tack welded a nut that is the same thread pitch as the barrel adjuster onto my frame. Works like a dream and it cost me nothing.

Good idea. I was thinking about doing that but I will just ya a gyro tab instead since the mounting holes are already there.
