Hi Guys & Gals,

Will soon start building up my bros SB66c and noted that the rear brake cable passes between the rear triangle and suspension upper link.

Has anyone come up with any great creative ideas on how the eliminate the potential for cable rub/fouling in this area?

Pictures of your solutions/set up will be appreciated.

Many thanks :)

I bought some of that helicopter edge tape stuff and put it on a couple of spots where it would rub. Not adverse to getting the bike banged up, but not from brake cable rub!

I thought you wanted to kvetch about having to disconnect the brake to get it installed! One of my least favorite things about an awesome frame.

Thanks bear & Hokidachi,

Don't your solutions still allow the cable the rub up against either rear triangle and suspension upper link.

On a previous bike I have tried bear's idea & you only notice the damage once you lift the cable and inspect the area underneath

I'm trying to figure out a way of 'suspending' the cable between these two parts.

Ideas welcome

Hokidochi, how well does it do as you cycle the suspension?

When I first put the tube tops, it slipped a little bit, may be by half an inch. I moved it back once and I never had to touch it again.
To give you some context on how my suspension works: I ride most of the time at Demo near Santa Cruz. I took the photos after an easy ride nearby. When I'm back from Demo, the shock O-ring is at the end of the shock body.
