Okay, if you are reading this, don't.
Go down to the post below first, cause this is like the second part.
Okay, so to do my cable job, I needed well, cables:
That's right sports fans!
Nothing but the best for this here bike!
Okay, I was going to try me some Yokozunas, but these were cheaper.
Anyways, they come in a complete set, which was a good thing:
I started off with the rear brakes and ran into a pesky Italian thing.
The ferrules wouldn't fit on the larger diameter brake housing.
So I improvised and wrapped the end with some electrical tape so that the end would fit snugly into to the guide on the top tube:
So it seems like they(the Italians) didn't put everything in there.
Luckily, I found another thingy in my tool box and took off the tape.
I've never done these Ergo Shifters or STIs before so I was a bit concerned about the shifters.
The old cables came out and the new ones went right on in.
Again, a ferrule problem.
The new ones wouldn't fit in the shifter.
No problem, I just used the old ones.
The chain stay thingy is sort of funky, there's a reducer for the guide:
Thankfully Campagnolo gives you that one, for that's the one that had split open.
Fit right in:
Now, that bottom bracket thingy.
I don't know why, but it appeared to me as if it had been mounted backwards.
I took it off and cleaned it, and put it on the other way.
Routed the cables, tuned the derailleurs and a happy camper was I.
Then I started to look at the pictures of that guide:
I stuck a piece of inner tube under there for the cable was rubbing the frame.
The more I looked at the picture, the more I realized the guide thingy was on correctly in the first place!
Boy, what was I thinking?
So, off it came and back on it went:
This time, the correct way.
The cable still rubs so I left that inner tube piece under there.
The thing is, the cables still sit on the down tube.
Just barely, but they do touch.
At first I thought maybe the down tube was tweaked or something but then I remembered the weird shape:
Remember, it's triangulated?
I guess some rub can't be helped.
Okay, so there you go.
Oh, and one bad thing I found:
It would appear the rear derailleur is cracked where you lock the cable down.
It still works and not really a problem for I was looking for a nine speed Mirage derailleur anyways.
Now I'm just looking harder.
