    Need to pop rivet STI guide, having an issue

    My problem is, the center section of the rivets--the piece that the rivet *** grabs hold of, and which breaks off once it's riveted--is too short to grab with my ***.

    First off, the *** can't get down against the head because the rivet is so close the the tall threaded section of the guide. So, I used a small washer--about 1/2" long--to slide over the center section, which basically works to extend the head of my rivet ***. However, doing this causes the center section to be too short for the *** to grab onto, like I mentioned above.

    Here's the STI guide: http://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-...-STI-STOP.html

    It's the same basic guide everyone else uses, so how do you guys rivet it in place?

    Nevermind, I figured it out, and did a how-to: http://gearinches.com/blog/how-to/ho...sti-cable-stop
