Hi All, would anyone be able to tell me where I can buy some of the nice rubber grommets that are at a 30 or 45 degree angle to any tube when installed? I am installing Di2 and want to run the wires in the tubes of the frame. Thanks..

You can buy the Shimano grommets from plenty of online shops or you lbs could probably order them pretty easily.

It's a little hang card with, I believe, four of them per package. There are two kinds -- ones made for round drilled holes and oval ones for oval holes (and for the shaped oval holes with a rim that many frames now use. The oval ones give slightly better cable routing but you have to match the type to the holes on your frame.

Ah, nice. That also looks like a good option for sealing the hole for the mechanical front derailleur cable on our Scott Solace frames.

Silicone caulking works great too.
