I have a small problem with the outer gear cable on the rear derailleur of my Raleigh :(

The outer gear cable does not seem to fit snugly into the frame mounted cable stop, and causes the plastic to crimp/wear and then the cable starts to rust,

Its also causing the frame mounted cable stop to rust too :(

Can you get any cable ferrules for the gear cable ?

And should the outer gear cable be flexible or stiff like mine (ooer :oops: )

Is this what you need? Cable Ferrules and the outer for your gear cable should be reasonably stiff.

Kind Regards

Once they arrive, call back into your LBS and promptly shove one up the young lads nose, this way he will certainly remember to research things thoroughly before giving out flim flam answers. Alternatively simply call in and educate the young man on how to use the Internet to research any questions he is given, he can then give the correct answer, people will buy from them and they will continue to stay in business.

Kind Regards
