Yeah the one I got from the LBS is that exact Shimano blue one.

I doubt my original one is the Campy one. My Felt bike came with FSA/105-5700 gruppo.

Just replaced the cable and housing. Shifting still feels VERY stiff. I wonder if the plastic guide underneath the BB needs to be replaced. Maybe the cable has been cutting into it too much. It's...
