Quieting the Slipstream

with 3 comments

CIMG0001.JPGThe Slipstream is an excellent bike but it does have few annoyances (this is how we make the bike our own). One is the way the front brake cable rattles against the top stay. This could have been easily fixed by adding a few rubber beads on the cable.
I would have fixed it that way if I could have found a source for rubber beads but I couldn't. If anyone knows of a source for these rubber beads please let know. Instead I used a piece of 3/8" split cable wrap from Radio Shack.
