Front hub motor cable inlet protection?

Post by wilca428 » Apr 15 2018 6:37am

I search for front hub motor cable inlet protection, that can withstand some rough handling. Maybe I lack the right words for it. Anybody?

I need someting bigger that protects the cables from the u-turn and some 5 centimeters up on the fork. When the u-turn part is unprotected it gets snagged in.

I found the Grin part very effective. Simple and extremely strong.
Thanks Justin_le we're here thanks to you. All the best to the mods for their tireless work keeping it on an even keel.

I haven't tested mine :D , but if it won't protect the cable, something isn't routed right.

I have a similar question: where can one get the spring/strain relief that commonly comes slipped over the phase wires where they exit the axle on hub motors. I seem to have lost mine.
If simplicity worked, the world would be overrun with insects.
