I have purchased a 2012 Giant TCR Advanced frameset and have found that I am missing the black cable stop/guide that pushes into the frame for the rear brake, near the seatpost. I thought that should be a fairly easy part to obtain as it is essentially a small black plastic stopper with a short length of narrow cable sheath. Google searches haven't brought up anything useful yet. I have been to two Giant dealers so far and neither have had to order them before and are doubting the availability of them. They look the same on all 2012-2014 TCR and Defy internal routed models that I have looked at.
Does anyone know where to source them? Or does anyone have a spare one in a broken frame, and could send one to me at my cost?
Any advice or help much appreciated.
G'Day Josh, welcome outside.
Is this the sort of thing you're looking for?
It's a ferrule (cable end cap) from one of various Jagwire cable kits. Not sure if you can buy them seperately, a quick ebay search might do the trick.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

Thanks for the replies guys. The picture looks very close.
Here is the end cap from the handlebar end:
The critical part is the narrower part of the cap which is 4mm in diameter. This section inserts into the hole in the frame. The wider part that sits externally to accept the cable end is approx 7mm externally with a 5mm hole. Is this a standard size cap? Or is it specific to Giant?
Looks like I need a Jagwire POP Ferrule. They come with some of their cable kits. It takes a 5mm cable down to a 4mm hole. Thanks for the help guys, once I used the correct terminology I found it fairly quickly.
Just picked up a TCR TDF Edition frame.
Planning on fitting a mechanical groupset in the interim. (TDF edition has Di2, but like all TCR frames, can accommodate mechanical)
May need to get hold of these cable stops for the rear brake (2 required there) and both gear cables (3 required I think - 2 for head tube and 1 for the chain stay). Where can I get them from the quickest? Google didn't really help me.
