|Has anybody used avid flak jacket cables on a road bike?
Also, how do you prevent cables from wearing the paint on the head tube? I've only had my Lemond for a few weeks and there's already wear....

|Use clear stickers or tape. Put it where the cables rub and it should be OK. Make sure to change them every 6 months or so, or the housing will eventually rub thru the sticker and start to rub the paint again. I have a friend who has a white frame and uses a little piece of Velox rim tape to do that job. Holds up forever he claims.
