    KLEIN cable housing, any resources?

    Looking to replace the worn/torn cable sleeve that runs inside the frame. Has anyone located this part? Looking for a source.

    Thanks,

    As I recall, on my old Klein Attitude way back when the "sleeve" we used was just good old fashioned "housing liner"

    Something like this, but in clear:

    I'll be dipped... this just might do the job. The only thing I'm concerned about is that this cable doesn't have the ferrule ends on it. Thanks!

    Just flare the end on the liner material, it will work fine.

    Just want to say thank to those who took the time to pass on the knowledge. I also made notes on all those that tried before me... I'll be sure to leave the cable IN before attempting to replace the sleeve

    Allllrighty then... what the heck is attaching the liner to the entry hole?. Tried to pull it out but it wouldn't budge.

    Scratch that... she's out. Thanks @mtnbiker72, I see the flaring you spoke of... simple job now that it's out.
