I would like to replace the cable of a Sturmey Archer hub, but can't find a way to disassemble the old cable without destroying it, and it puzzles me how to insert the new cable.
To better explain, I have five elements:
- The cable
- The cable tip 1 (top)
- The cable tip 2 (bottom)
- The adjusting part (for the lack of the proper term, I'm refering to the cylindric piece that screws into the hub's cable)
- The housing of the cable
I haven't found a way to remove the cable (1) because tip 1 and 2 (2, 3) are attached to the cable, and the adjusting part (4) also is attached and doesn't pass through tip 2 (3). The housing is also too small for the rest to pass through.
I wouldn't mind keeping the current cable, but would really like to know how to replace it.
Here's a photo to document this:
