  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

On my previous bikes I never addressed the issue of cable rub - and I paid the price. After 7 years of riding, my old bike had deep grooves worn into the head tube from the constant back and forth of my cable housing. When I upgraded to a carbon fiber bike I decided the time had come. I identified potential wear points, slipped the Tube Tops on, and ceased to worry. The only issue I see with these is that if they are installed near a substantial bend in the cable housing these can tend to migrate a little from where they were initially installed.
