I picked up a inline gear indicator and after a bit of web surfing felt confident about doing the install. Still a newbie at working on our bikes.
The problem I encountered was how to get the cable out of the Ultegra STI shifter. I started taking apart the little covers but could not see how to access the cable. So a call to the LBS and load up the Speedster and up to the LBS I head. The guy there was not sure how to remove the cable as he had never had to replace one. But he called a sister shop and got the answer. By this time I was thinking about just having him complete the job. But Russ said,'Hey, you took my Maintenance Class you can handle this". So I load the Speedster back up and head home. After taking careful measurements,I am a woodworker so I Always Measure Twice & Cut Once, I unwrap the bartape cut the cable housing do the install and IT worked!
Now no guessing when we our out riding
