    Brake housing end caps

    I am trying to replace the brake and derr housings. The end caps supplied (Campy) fit easily over the derr housing, but I cannot get them to fit over the thicker brake housing. Any tricks to use here?

    Thanks.

    Bill

    Answered my own question

    My mistake. Campy supplies end caps for the derr housings, but they are not used on the brake housings.

    Der 4mm, brake 5mm. The part is called a ferrule. Any LBS will have then in stock.

    If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyways.

    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
