I had the chance to buy some great break cables from jagwire to have spares. I have also some regular brake cables from the local lbs.
Trying to adjust the r breaks i snapped the cable so I said big deal, I have great cables to replace with.
When i tried to replace the cable surprise surprise. Take a look at the pictures.
The shifter is Shimano Tiagra ST4500.
Original cable + original cable hook unit.
Replacement cable + original cable hook unit
Both spare cables I had have the same end. What should I do? Find the same cables as the originals or find cable hook unit for the new cables. I thought that shimano has standardized parts but I was wrong.
