:oops:Is it possible to shorten a Nexus 3 speed shifter cable connected to grip shifter? Also, is it possible to run a stick shifter to thus hub as well or am I stuck with the Shimano grip shifter? Thanks

yes, you can do it yourself - you match the cable housing ferrule at the hub bracket holder, and the boss on the hub end of the cable can be mounted anywhere on the cable:

it's been awhile since I worked on my daughter's Nexus-8. Didn't change the cable, but changed the drive sprocket up 2 teeth and the chainring down 2 teeth to change her city gears into touring gears.

I found the pdf of the shop manual to tackle hers, and here's the one for your Nexus-3

actually, try this - what you need to look at is in the installation instructions:

Great info.....thought I'd get an answer to two from my Cabe family members before I attacked this "strangulation" potential. I felt the cable seemed long for my liking. Thanks everyone for your input! Now back to the bike dungeon!

My other concern is about his that gearbox axel attachment sticks out.....waiting to get tagged off! I ride my mtn bikes hard on technical with derailleurs and they take a beating like my body but this nexus bump out seems fragile. I'll just have to be careful and keep both the bike and me upright!

Haha Partsguy.....I know those tags well.....I install window treatments and remove those tags every day! Hopefully, no one lobby's congress to enact a law to attach warning tags to long bike cables!
