Big Dummy Cable Run

This has come up for me a couple times and I can never seem to find a good source on the web.

For my Surly Big Dummy equipped with Surly Ope Bar handlebars and Rohloff Speedhub, the shift cable housing length from the Rohloff grip shifters is 87 inches. This is for the largest Dummy frame, 22 inches, built in 2008.

This has come up, because I love my Yokozuna brake cable housing, so I decided to go with their shift cables this time around. To order cables and housing long enough, consider SKU 63640, Yokozuna Rohloff Cable kit, that should include the following:

2  pcs       2500mm x 4mm SIS black housing

2  pcs      SIS 1.2mm x 2500mm Shift wire

6  pcs       4mm plastic housing end caps

2  pcs       Aluminum cable tips

Will report back on how it goes.
