my wifes dutch bike has the aforementioned sram t3 gripshifter (latest model). The gear cable was frayed so I whipped it out and proceeded to try and fit another one. However, no matter what I try, the darn cable will not thread through the top end of the shifter to the bottom end of the shifter. According to srams technical sheet, it should magically thread through. The only advice that it has given me is to keep it in 3rd gear. If anyone knows of a magic tip to thread the cable through I will be eternally grateful, as such a simple, run of the mill process has left me frustrated and scratching my head.
