It's mostly some plastic tube that lead cable to front derailleur.

The last time I changed cables, the LBS guy had to replace the original one because he was broken, and only this one was on hand to fit the hole in the frame.
I would like to replace it with some that looks more like the original - it was smaller, looked nicer, and maybe had a gram or two less :mrgreen: But I don't know what that little part is called :roll:

Sealed end cap, or cable shield . Look for Shimano Y6AM98080 or Alligator LY-HPR01 or some similarly looking "no name" ones.
