The zip-tie spider trick around the cable hose works very well to avoid any annoying rattle, I did that on a Evo Hi-Mod Disc I helped a friend build this summer, it's dead silent. Ideally you put it on as you route the hose so it sits near the middle of the downtube, might be harder once the hose is connected but you could probably do it by taking the bars off and bring the lever as close to the frame's rear brake entry point (taking the bar tape off would give you more slack), slide the hose down so you could install the spider through the BB opening, then pull it up into the downtube.
In the meantime, I have found on other Evo Discs (we had a few as demo/rental bikes for a bike tour company I worked for this summer but the hoses came already routed and bled from the factory so I didn't bother touching them) that simply holding the rubber grommet at the entry point in it's place with one hand and pulling the hose out so it's tight and straight inside the frame helps but only temporarily as road vibration will have it slide down again eventually... Maybe put a little dab of glue or a small zip tie on the hose to stop it coming back down could help?
Anyway, very nice bike.
Yep i was actually thinking about giving the zip tie trick a go as well as it seems to be the most common solution.
Unfortunately the Toronova Team bars actually have internal routing which is great for asthetics and not having the cabling buldge under the tape but Ill need to remove the bar tape back to the hoods and re-bleed as a result. That's ok though because I didnt quite bleed the rear brake all that well in the first place so needed to do this anyway.
@jeffy Have tried pulling the cable tight and holding in place against the rubber grommet at the entry point with a zip tie or some electrical tape but it really only holds for 10-15km and then it just vibrates loose again. Its really the only little niggle I have left.
And thanks for the compliment! Hopefully will have some time this weekend to put a few more km's on it.
