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!
