Big Dummy Shift 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 Open 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 long enough cables and housing, consider SKU 63640, Yokozuna’s Rohloff Cable kit, which includes the following:

  • 2  pcs       2500mm x 4mm SIS black housing
  • 2  pcs      SIS 1.1mm x 3000mm stainless steel shifter cable
  • 6  pcs       4mm plastic housing end caps
  • 2  pcs       Aluminum cable tips

Will report back on how it goes.
