good work there LGF.
where did you get the coloured outer casing? Coloured cables used to be a big decorative item. these days it seems to be campag/shimano black or grey only.
I've possibly still got an unused blue coated gear cable somewhere. But one only, not pair I'm afraid. Worth me looking? Would be FOC.


ebay is the best place for coloured cable - not all of it is double sleeved though.

The blue brake cable is a chopped up BMX cable, the rest is left over from something else.

The grey bit is Shimano SIS, cos it was there in the box and the right size.

Sorry, wasn't clear - a lovely mech, just the fact that it's being stretched to the limit in the photo

It would be called a Formula as it's custom. They are in the early catalouges, Mr K has one as well, though iirc in the orange/white fade and of older vintage.


What Columbus tubing is it made from ?
