About a week ago, a managed to snap the 3 speed cable of my bicycle. I took a broken cable for deralieur based shifters, cut it to size, and by folding the end over, was able to temporarily get it to work. However, the folded over cable soon wiggled it's way out of the screwy thingy (that bit that is on the end of the cable that screws onto the shifting mechanism on the hub). I checked at my LBS, and the guy there was unable to do anything for me as far as getting me a new 3 speed cable. Does anybody have any ideas how I can get this cable to work? I seem to recall seeing a thread here a while back about how to do this, but I can not seem to find it right now.
In the mean time, I am going to try one of those crimpy things that prevent the cable from fraying, to see if it will work to keep the screwy thing on this time. (Boy, I wish I knew the proper terms for these things).
