Lots of options on CRC:

I typed CABLE COVER into CRC's search and it comes out with lots of stuff - take a look first, theres a few "kits".

You could also go old-skool and use the thin Aquarium air hose line cut down.

Cheers for that - though they are all to cover the wire - loads sell that stuff - even ebay.  But to cover the cable itself is harder to find.  Aquarium tube is not a bad idea, slightly softer than brake or gear cable so less likely to rub but still would prefer rubber.

Oh I see, you want to put something over a outer housing - I was thinking of expose cable which runs to the back - my Trance has all its cables exposed from front to back - and it can scratch if you're transporting or lifting the bike.

I guess then, the aquarium line maybe a good shout - thing, rubbery, and in varying diameters to suit the housing.

You mean it doesnt come with heli tape under the down tube where the cables run  Wink  Just get some of that off ebay, remove/loosen cables and apply it

Yeh - heli tape, or patches may be the way - OR have a found a niche in the market, Might go to dragons den with this one.  "look you bunch of £$%^ give me 500k for 0.00001% of my cable protector company"

Its a winner.

I used this one last time to redo bits on two of the bikes and completly OTT on another frame and still had a bit left over, nice and thin and far more invisible than what I used before which kept coming off at the edges as it was too thick http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?V...K:MEWNX:IT

Decathlon do these as well in a foam material but you do have to dissassemble the cable & slide it over. That said I can say they work very well. I've had mine on for nearly two years & no cable rub at all  ;D
