Quad Guide

Quad Guide 3d printed Mechanical parts Spare parts
This is the worlds first cable guide to fit 4 cables and. This means that you can now mount the cables for your derailleurs, your rear brake, and your dropper post onto your frames cable guide mounts to give a clean looks to your bike and do away with those zip ties. This guide accommodates 3 standard size gear cable outers, and 1 standard size brake hose. You can also fit a standard size cable brake cable the hose slot. These are still undergoing testing so please send feedback as to what you thought of them and if any improvements can be made.

@Low3n Thank you very much! We're glad you like the guides. It's good to know that they work with lots of different makes (sometimes with a little modification) of bikes.

I used the bolts already on the bike and thay fit flush.

Iv just put the ones I ordered on my bike (ghost ), looks very tidy apart from top one the end cables pop out but an easy fix just grind the back down so it pulls the clip in more. Great little clips guys great product

@petetheegg I see what you mean. I think your bolts will fit in fine. If you wish to remove some material to make them fit better I think they will be strong enough with a countersunk bolt. True they will have the frame for support, but the cables pulling on the guides might cause them to break if they are weakened. I suggest you experiment with them to see what works. Maybe order an extra one at the same time and modify it before you do the others to see if it works. If it all works out you'll have a spare!

@ODCtechnologies Also, having read your reply again, when talking about countersinking the bolt head I was thinking of using different bolts to the ones you have pictured - the guides that came with my frame use bolts with a head like a wood screw. If the guide's bolt seat were designed with these bolts in mind would they still become weak? If the "Strong and Flexible" material they are made from is like Nylon as the write-up says, and since they will have the frame for support, I imagine this wouldn't be a problem but then I don't know the material! Anyway. Many thanks again and good luck!

@petetheegg Yes I agree it is expensive. I think its a set price for any size model, thats why it costs so much. Note that the guides are sold individually. Thanks very much. All the best from ODC tech.

@ODCtechnologies Thank you, yes, I had a look myself at what this website is all about. I will be ordering shortly. For what they are the shipping is pricey, but makes them no more expensive than clips available elsewhere. Great design! All the best

@petetheegg The bolt seat is countersunk a little, about 2-3mm if I remember. The seat cannot be sank so that the bolt is flush as the bolt head is bigger than guide. They are made from Shapeways 'strong and flexible' plastic. You can find more details of this material in the Discover section (top left of the page). As it is plastic you can drill into it more if you wish to sink the bolt more, however this might compromise the strength of the guide and cause it to bend. Yes you can get shipping to the UK, you can select this above where you click buy. Please note that I do not operate this site or manufacturer the parts, I am just the designer. Shapeways deal with everything, including shipping. There is a section on this website dealing with shipping costs. Note that delivery can take several weeks as they are 3D printed to order.

@ODCtechnologies Cool! I do have some feedback, and questions. - Would the bolt seat not be better if it were countersunk? I personally feel it would be a neater solution. btw They're a great idea – I can't believe they're not a standard component! - What are they made from? i.e. could I countersink them myself easily? - Do you ship to the UK? And at what cost?
