Does anyone know where to get D/A casing at a good price? I got silver with my Shifters off of E-bay & I'd really like black instead. Anyone interested in grey casings can do me a note at jagiger@cox.net

Thanks

This is a great place to order casings (in many different colors), cables, bearings, nuts, washers, and the multitude of little bits & pieces you need. In addition, they have some vintage and hard to find parts too.

I just replaced the cables on my rig and used generic casing from Quality. The 4mm stuff works great and the quality is excellent. Make sure to ask for 4mm since many shops use 5mm on everything. I like to use plastic ferules since they will not dig into the paint of the cable stops. For the cables I like the slick stainless varity. Many shops only sell plated cables so I had to look some in order to find the stainless ones.

Just rambling.
