I'm with @SWijland here. I admire your perserverance in finding the exact one, but in my experience one of 4mm insert diameter should also work. I would pre-bend the outer cable a bit in the required shape and than just try it. If the exit angle under tension is still not exactly what you want, I would 'shim' the 4mm part of the ferrule just a little with a thin layer of duct-tape, teflon,.... in order to get a better fit.
If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, Muhammad must make his own ferrule.
curious if Muhammad rides a perfect and crisp shifting bike at the moment :) ?
I need to wrap the bars but things are looking good!
Well worth the wait - looks fabulous 👌
Been out for a ride today, smooth roads only because, you know, 23mm tyres. Shifting is fine, crisp, but seems quite mechanical in comparison with my Scapin bikes (Dura Ace and Veloce). It is fast, I must admit, and takes no time at all to get up to a decent speed. Steering is a little noodly though, perhaps as I'm used to wider bars. Still, after the agony, it was fun!
