I enjoy writing code to sovle my analytical problems. My main tools are SQL, Powershell, MS Office and .NET (VB and c#). I particularly enjoy writing custom functions to save time for myself and my colleagues.

I ride a Surly Cross-Check bicycle on my daily commute.

comment How do you make an end-capped gear cable?
I've ammended to language in the question to make it clear I'm looking to make the end-caps on the cable. I had thought these were called anchors.

The ferrule has a thread that screws on to a hub gear indicator

comment Rear derailleur hits spokes when switching to largest sprocket
Unfortunately (fortunately) I already had it straightened out at the LBC this afternoon with no problems. I'll take pictures and photoshop the effect where it was bent to demonstrate and upload those. It's worth pointing out that I was able to cycle to the LBC with the new derailleur fitted on the bent hanger as long as I avoided the lowest gears.

comment Rear derailleur hits spokes when switching to largest sprocket
The LBC has a special tool and are able to straighten the hanger no problems. Apparently this might not be so easy if you have a composite or aluminium frame but the Surly is a steel-frame and should bend back fine.

I just looked at some alignments and the frame is bent inwards.
