high quality frames that put the little knobs for the cable housings on the head tube instead of one-two inches down on the down tube?

I'm having some trouble with my fuji finest where the cable housings to the shifting cables on both sides are rubbing up against(and biting into as well) the paint on the head tube...I tried putting some park tool grease on the spot but I'm thinking of the future on this question..

go buy some little smiley face stickers that you used to get in first grade (or maybe you never did because you were dumb like me and all the other kids laughed when you got one that said "try again" or "sorry, you suck" or "contains 60% real fruit") anyway, go buy your favorite color smiley face stickers and put 'em on. When they get worn out take some acetone (nail polish remover) to get the goo off and stick another one on. It makes your bike look neat/crazy and it'll protect the paint. Its not worth buying a new frame just for a different position of the cable routing cups. if you find the right frame for you and it doesn't have the cups where you want them, get over it and buy some more smiley face stickers. :-)
