My old fork and derailleur cables had it pretty bad. With a new fork and new cables going on whats the best way to prevent this?

I put a little bit of the soft, fuzzy side of a strip of Velcro on the cable where it rubs.

OP - Go to your local LBS and ask the nice tech if he/she has any left over frame patches from new builds. The majority of new (in box) bikes come with a few of these clear frame patches/stickers to protect from rubbing. I put them on every bike I build and usually have one or two left over. I just toss them aside and hold onto them for situations like this.

If they can't help you. Price Point has many options you can choose from for cheap. Fenders & Frame Protection for Mountain Bikes & Road Bicycles

And with even more options there is always Ebay... bicycle frame protection patches | eBay

Good luck!

this is Jagwire's remedy :thumbsup: and if you wait till after you are done with the install to have a cocktail, the Jagwire logo has a much better chance of being right side up :nono:
