I am planning to build up a new frame and started looking it over for the small parts I'm going to need before I get the process started.
I looked at the cable stops on the downtube and noticed threads inside the stops. My current road bike does not have these threads and the cable/housing just goes into the stops.
Now, for the stops on this new frame, can I use the same cable/housing or do I have to use one that uses the threads? Any particular name they are called (ie. cable stop adjustment barrels)?
Here's a pic from somebody elses bike (I wish it was mine)
Are these adjusting barrels all the same? Or do I have to get it specifically from specialized?
