Do you already have the cable stops? If not, then you might consider looking for ones that are attached by rivets. That will reduce the amount of skill and tools you'll need and will still give you a pretty strong bond (although it probably won't be the strongest as per your question, that is still probably welding or brazing). You'll need to make sure the ...

And you'll never be able to know if your work is fatigue-resistant ...

Jagwire calls these "Hose Guide for Frame Loops". I've also found these under "Cable Guide" on Amazon.

They are possibly called "cable clamps". For most frames that I've seen, they looked like this: When lost, they are usually replaced by zip-ties, which are a better solution in the first place, from my perspective. Your frame, however, looks to use a different type of clamps which act like inserts. From the picture it is hard to tell whether the ...
