Cable rub

I am getting depressed that my bike is seeing some cable rub :(

Anyone know of a good solution?

I was hoping to locate clear stickers/decals. I've heard of helicopter tape, but can only seem to find them on UK sites.

Any guidance (solutions and where to find them) would be helpful to both me and the bike.

Cable rub ... where?

On the headtube? Glueless patches, one on either side.

Who needs cables?

Hmmm, that's not the response I would expect from a fixed gear fanatic. :-)

Yes, the cable rub is on the head tube.

I couldn't find it at Sids, Metro Bikes, or Chelsea.

I've managed to find it at Nashbar...I hope this is it:

Thanks for the guidance Evan.
