    Small dia. Campy cable housing end?

    I need a small dia. Housing end for a Campy shift cable. The stock one does not fit in the cable stop on my old Pinarello frame. I have had no luck finding on so far. Here is a pic of the braze on and the campy ferrule. Instead of fitting in the stop it rides on the outside of it at an angle. The ferrule can only be very slightly larger than the housing itself.

    Any bike shop should have a bin of stepped ferulles.
    A half dozen come with the 25ft bags of housing and they rarely get used anymore, so there are usually plenty around.

    Brake cable is usually 5mm, whereas shifter cable is 4mm. That looks like a brake ferrule on a shifter cable. Note; shifter is often black plastic while brake is silver colored metal.

    If you're using campy housing, you should have gotten a step-down ferrule for derailleur housing. Check the baggy, you might have just missed it.

    The build is brand new, never ridden. I also have a broken ankle so I wont be able to ride it for a while
    I checked the bag and no stepped ferrule. I 'll be picking up a new Bianchi frame in the morning so I am sure that lbs will have what I need. Thank you all for the replies and information.

    Mike.

    Just bring the bike to the shop with you and they will fix you right up. I have 2 old school bikes that have the same setup and never have any problems getting the parts. Get several and put them in your work bench.

    LBS also helped me out with those.

    They are also available from these guys: http://www.loosescrews.com/

    Worth knowing about them for all sorts of NOS stuff and great service.

    No affiliation, just a happy retro customer :-)
