Wanted: Nipples (aka cable stops)

Posted on
  • well not nipples... but nipple like cable stop (i think that's what they're called) that go on top of old school weinmann brake levers so that the cable housing has something to be wedges in (see picture).

    I've carelessly misplaced the other one and was wondering if anyone might have upgraded their brakes whilst converting an old frame and has one spare.

    if not, any suggestions on how to create a makeshift one


  • I'll have a look when I get in. I pretty sure I do.
    How urgent?

  • you're are a star BRM. thanks in advance for looking. it's not actually too urgent. I;m on holiday (oh the joys of teaching) and it had just occurred to me that i;ve got all the bits to put together another bike so i thought i'd use my time constructively and do it. This will be the spare bike (after the beater) that people can borrow when they come to visit...

    if you do have one, my time is flexible so can come and meet you wherever is convenient

  • Gah, I threw 2 of them (plastic though) away the other day :(

  • problem solved. i had a massive clear out and found the other one at the bottom of a plastic bag. happy days. thanks BRM for your kind offer of looking

  • I could use some of these if anyone has any. Any colour.
