Cable routing for Atom drum on Peugeot tandem


Active Member
Hi everyone, I'm rebuilding a1980's Peugeot Grand Touring tandem which I've had sandblasted and painted, but I can't quite get the cable routing for the Atom drum brake correct - it's routed down the downtube, along the bottom, then via a cable stop under the rear bottom bracket shell, with a length of cable outer to the cable stop attached to the mounting bracket of the brake which bolts to the frame. But the cable outer rubs on the rear wheel. I could ziptie the outer to the non drive side chainstay, but that seems a bit rubbish. Could someone advise, or send a photo of what the original configuration was please?

Hold my beer and watch this....
Just looked at mine and it seems cable ties are the best option (in an appropriate colour, don't know why I used one black and one white?). I guess originally there would have been some spring clips that were common on bikes in the era and before.
