Changing from sti stops to friction levers - ???dan ida
Jul 26, 2003 3:40 PM
On my cannondale frameset, there were sti cable stops on the frame studs. WHen removed there is a black plastic, hexagon center, square shape beyond that and finally a slight recess that the sti stop fit into. Now to put a friction lever (I have both 105 and shimano 600, they both look the same on the back) something has to be slightly different. They seem to need a different plastic??? part to fit over the steel part and create a slight taper for the backside of the lever to fit into. WHat is it called that I need? Thanks
