How do I get the cable logos to face out?(10 posts)

How do I get the cable logos to face out?Psalm 147-10_11
Apr 29, 2002 7:33 AM
Maybe I'm being a bit anal, but I just replaced the cables on my bike and had the hardest time getting the cable logos to go in the proper direction.

I've always been impressed with shops that do the little things right. Cable logos is one of those little things to me (sorta like having the tire logo above the stem and facing the drivetrain). Getting the Campy logo in the right spot was easy by the rear derailleur and brake, but for the life of me, I couldn't get the logos coming out of the ergo shifter to face forward. It seems that no matter how I rotated the cables, the logos always faced the head tube. Any tips?
Leave them as they are, we already know you've got Campy...(nm)tz

Clearly I have been too anal in setting up my bike.

Going forward, I think I'll spray paint my frame and put electrical tape all over the top and down tubes like the guys in the city...

BTW, I stopped reading Style Man after I listened to his advice and put Armor-All on my tires and wiped out on my first corner...

Nah, we all are fetishist.

"Going forward, I think I'll spray paint my frame and put electrical tape all over the top and down tubes like the guys in the city..."

BWAHAHAHAHA!

Now wait a minute there mister...it's gaffer tape, not electrical, and furthermore I would NEVER spray paint my frame. Sheesh. ( ;

"BTW, I stopped reading Style Man after I listened to his advice and put Armor-All on my tires and wiped out on my first corner..."

Ah Style Man, he's a real brainiac ain't he?

Cheers!

Hold the housing the way you want it and tape it down before inserting the inner cable.
