Want new cable outers, help

Postby boss » Tue Nov 20, 2012 12:20 pm

Hi all,

I have a 2011 Madone 5.2, with internal cabling.

My bike is black with white tape and white cables. Which I kinda don't like.

So I'm looking to switch the tape and cable outers to black. Tape is no sweat, got that sorted.

But to replace the outers, what stuff do I need to buy? Just outers? Outer caps as well?

Will these suit:

And if outer caps are are required:

And how much cable will I need? I've assumed that the cable outer stops at the frame... correct me if I'm wrong, I've only eyeballed the frame and it looks like there are caps/stops for the outers where the cables enter the frames.

Thanks all.

Basically, those would suit. Brake cable ferrules are probably bigger than gear cables, so look to get some of those. Always buy more, you WILL drop and lose one.

Y'see, this is where an LBS is worth more than gold. I can walk into mine, ask for this stuff, be given it at a competitive price, and walk out five minutes later with all the stuff. No paying postage, no waiting a week, no being left with cables that are too short. Take the old ones in, measure against them, take the new ones home.

Cable outer is probably continuous, most other internal cabled carbon bikes are.
