Bought a second hand langster off fleabay to use as a beater for the next couple of years - I'm transitioning from fully geared road bikes so riding it single speed with brakes.
Problem is the previous owner has removed the cable guides underneath the top tube, so I'm left with 3 small holes - any suggestions for replacements?
At the moment I have the cable secured with electrical tape, wouldn't mind getting the actual brackets if they exist somewhere - haven't managed to find any so far! any help would be appreciated

Look for clamp-on / stick-on housing guides (Problem Solvers do them, other brands available).

The closest thing I could find was:
But obviously need something where the guide is perpendicular to the fixing, could you elaborate on the other brands / stockists you know about?
Ideally something like this:
Just without having to pay the value of the item over again for shipping from Germany
I was thinking a clamp like this :
SJS Cycles is usually the go-to place for small gubbins like this.
Get a bike shop to pop rivet some back on if you say you have the holes.
