    Shite

    I'm putting on my new shifter housing but my old housing end caps are too small for the housing. Is this right? Do I have to get a new set of end caps? How early do shops open? Doh?

    you purchased 5 mm housing? you'll also need to get 5 mm feruules. they are nickle plated brass.
    also, as a side not, never reuse old ferrules. it won't cause the bike to blow up but......well....i don't have a really good answer other than, and anal retentive will smell them. hehehe

    yeah, just tell them you have 5 mm housing.

    sorry about not mentioning that.

    4mm is what comes stock.

    but 5 is more stout and less prone to blow outs.
