  • Criggie - The one on the opposite STI to the one in the picture came without the white plastic ends. Cable can still be seated with just the middle part of the cable hook, but not as intended. – user34810 Nov 1 '17 at 20:31

This part is officially called "cable hook" and "cable hook unit" in Shimano docs. See attached image (I won't link it because the PDF is not hosted by Shimano) and this document (page 7).

It is indeed called a Cable Hook, and can be bought here: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/gear-spares/shimano-str700-cable-hook-unit-6cu-9805/

  • Good finding. Do you have any affiliation or association with that site? If so, SE rules require you to say so clearly. – Criggie Oct 24 '17 at 18:43
  • @Criggie No affiliation at all. I have shopped there a few times, they are my go-to shop for obscure bike parts. – jaknudsen Oct 26 '17 at 7:40
