I was riding along today and my shifter cable snapped, right at the point where it mates with that little metal nub at the end of the cable that stays in the shifter. These are Ultegra 10-speed shifters. Now I can't get it out because the shifter will only let me downshift four gears, and I need to downshift all ten in order to pull the nub out. I can't pull on the cable because there isn't enough of it to pull on.
Any suggestions? Is it possible to disassemble these things? Thanks!
EDIT: Just found this thread. My problem is similar, except there is absolutely no actual cable sticking out. Just the little metal nub is stuck inside.
