I need a hub shift cable fixing bolt unit
 
Hi All,

I've been away from the forum for a while and have come back into the fold ;) over the past month or so. I just bought a 4 speed nexus hub on ebay but it is missing the hub shift cable fixing bolt unit- the bolt/washer/nut 'thing' that is used to attach the shifter cable to the hub. Anybody have any ideas where I can get one? From my preliminary searches, it may be a difficult part to find. BTW, I do have the shifter and cable.

I purchased it to build a wheel for my single speed Dahon Boardwalk.

Thanks in advance,

Juan

Do a search for the ones made for the Nexus 7 & 8 speed hubs. They use the same nut & bolt.

Thanks. I haven't found a place that actually has one in stock. They are special order.

This is what you are looking for right?

Thanks again guys. It doesn't look like I'll be needing one after all. I had bought a nexus 4 speed hub/shifter drivetrain off ebay and when I recieved it, the aforementioned bolt was missing. I had emailed prior to bidding to see if it was a complete system and was told yes. When I originally asked them to supply the bolt, I was told to source it myself. Since I was told it was complete, I planned on a long and frustrating battle through ebay, but they (the seller) came through and said they would be sending me the bolt free of charge. When I get the bike done I'll post pics.
