    Well I made my spacer out of rubber washers glued together. I'd say the cable is more likely to wear through the spacer than the other way around.

    Sounds reasonable. How thick did you make it?

    I think it was around 3/4in. Didn't really measure. It took 5 of the little washers glued together to make it.

    So is it 5 washers with a slot in them for the cable, and a hose clamp or zip tie or around them? How do you like to pedal height now?

    The slot was so narrow I had to force it onto the cable. Since it was so hard to get on, I figure its not going to fall off on its own, so I didn't zip tie it or anything. pedal height is exactly what it was with my previous spacer.
