Cable Stop Repair

Cable Stop Repair

Dan at Grand Performance Bicycle Shop brought me a standard cable stop repair, but not for the normal reason.   Dan’s thighs are quite large and while riding his thighs would rub the cable stop and draw blood!

 

As I went to move the cable stop inward on the frame, I saw that there was a hole that was drilled/filled at the factory!  The factory had started drilling in the “right” place but then changed their mind and positioned the cable stop outboard.

 

Notice the white dot on the top picture.  That’s the filled hole.

After, the cable stop was moved inboard to avoid cutting Dan’s thighs.
