Anyone know a source of either Jagwire or Dia Compe stick on alloy hose guides in the uk.
Im after the square alloy version which have a plastic c-clip to hold the hose/cable in place.
not sure how to include an image otherwise I would.

Tried the plastic MPart ones and they have a curved base which causes them to pop off after a few rides.

Any help would really be appreciated.

I think I've tried all of those stick on guides. None of them worked for long. Best to go for a clamp on guide.

These use an o-ring to hold it on. You can also get different o-rings at a hardware store to make it tighter or for different diameter tubes. I think these would be a good solution.

Jagwire ones have a curved base too. If they come off, just get some more powerful 3M double sided Automotive trim tape. You could hang from the ceiling with that stuff.

Thanks guys
The Plastic ones from Mpart are quite curved and seem to pop off after a few washes,
Not keen on the o-ring ones as it means tieing something around the top tube (similar to a cable tie) ultimately these still allow the guide to move which scratches the frame.

Jagwire USA have been quite helpful and have pointed me to a source in Europe who is willing to post the alloy ones to me.
I should be able to flatten them a little so they can sit properly on the flat underside of my stumpies toptube. If they do come unstuck I can always try stickier auto tape or as a last resort epoxy them. At least I should get the neatness Im looking for without resorting to drilling the frame and invalidating the warrenty.

Pitty they come off but hopefully the alloy versions will sit a bit better & flatter.
Will post photo of new ones once recieved and on.
