Newbie winter project... ran into brake cable fitting problem
So, I bought a 2009 GT GTR Series-4 bike last year, but, as the title states I'm a newbie. Long-story-short, I like the bike but I wasnít liking the Sora thumb shiftersÖ So, In come the new (used) parts set from ebay:
Shimano 105 Brifters (5600)
105 crank (5600)
105 FD (5600)
105 10spd cassette (5600)
Ultegra RD (??)
shimano 105 brakes (5700)
--I also picked up a new Jagwire Racer DIY Kit
In the past Iíve done my own work on cars and motorcycle, so I decided to tackle this adventure myself. All of the hardware swapped out fine, but I havenít moved on to adjusting the parts for proper operation, because the provided Jagwire POP fittings do not seem to fit snugly into the brake adjuster thing (the noodle?).
I donít want to speculate and come up with the wrong answer and, unfortunately, my searches have been of little help. So, Iím turning to the help of the forum members for some guidance in the right direction.
Iíve attached an image, that Iím not sure if it will be helpful or not.
Needless to say, any input would be greatly appreciated.
