Trying to fit a set of retrofrictions onto a bike. Sadly all the gear cables I have won't fit! The nipple is too large for the recess (!). Anyone found a brand that'll work with these shifters?
Campag cables (4.0mm) work in mine. Shimano (4.4mm) don't.
Was under the impression gear cable nipples were reasonably standard.
There's a common problem of Shimano cables getting stuck in Campag Ergo shifters. The nipples are just the right size to wriggle in and get jammed.
cheers, cleared that one up for me. Always just used what I had lying around into campag shifters. Guess I was either lucky or forced them in!
those cables would be grand. Hopefully be at FoD so maybe see you there...
