Hi I'm building a c40 but I haven't got the cable guide, is possible to find one?

Cable sets typically include the cable guide (e.g., Campagnolo). If not, I assume the c40 takes a generic guide (my C50 does) and you should be able to pick one up at any bike store or online for a few bucks/euros.

Do you have a suggestion? a link? I have tried campagnolo and it doesn't work, so before spend another few euro I'd like to be sure that it works Image

Same here, I used a Campag one on my C40 with no problems.

sorry for the late response Image this is what I have, I could cut the guide a little but I think there should be a better fit than this, I have seen another campagnolo with a round hole for the bolt and not oval like this where the guides for the cables a bit shorter, this is the one:

Any help is appreciated

Like this? Personally, I'd just cut the one you have. The oval slot allows for more adjustment.
