I'm fixing up an old bike. The original front-derailleur SRAM grip shifter is cracked. I happen to have a Falcon grip shifter to replace the set with. For the life of me, I don't know how the damn thing threads together.
I pulled the original shifter cable out of the old SRAM shifter. The Falcon looks very similar, so I thought I was supposed to thread it back the same way. Nope. The cable would not loop through and started fraying. I opened the shifter (am I supposed to?) and tried to figure out the cabling. No clue. Wasted a shifter cable already.
How do you install the cable for a grip shifter? Google isn't helping. I see examples for fancy models with springs and levers and what not. This is a set of cheap, plastic shifters with only a single metal clip inside. Any help would be good.
My next step is to smash the thing with a hammer and buy a set of trigger shifters.
