Greetings cool guys and gals, I want to convert my Centurion Pro Tour from down tube shifters to bar end shifters, so.....I need a down tube double cable guide that fits onto the down tube braze on for the Suntour Aero shift levers. Anyone know where I can get one, or anyone have one for sale? Thanks for any help. ------------------------- Jay, I must confess that I've never seen such a device, but think that Plan B might be necessary. Here are three options for disguising the fact that you're using an easy-to-get conventional double cable stop:

1) Use the stub mount as base for an "aero" name plate mounted between there and the top tube, like a great racer.

2) Go down to the local craft store and get a miniature 8-ball or toy floor shift knob and mount it there for pure decoration.

3) Get one of the funky large-diameter tension adjust knobs that came with some late Campy down-tube shifters (or a weird old Cyclo shift lever with its mounting assembly), and attach it as a conversation-starter. Explain to all that ask that you have a pressurized down tube to control climbing rigidity, and that it is the pressure release.

Aren't you glad I'm trying to help? :-)
