    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.

    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.

    Juan
