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 Big Dummy, the cable run from the Rohloff grip shifters, mounted on Surly’s Open Bar, to the Speedhub is 87 inches. This is for the largest Dummy frame from 2008, 22 inches.

To order cables and housing long enough, Yokozuna filled a special order for shift cables that included 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 the brake cable length, next.
