    Jagwire Ripcord DIY Derailleur kit - question.

    Just picked up a kit for my build and had a few questions about the small parts/accessories.

    Since I will be running full length housing, I will not be using the liner at all.

    I assumed that the kit is enough to do both front and rear derailleur, but the accessory bag only came with (1) end cap/ferrule. Wouldn't I need (3) end caps/ferrule to complete the housing? (both shifters and at the rear derailleur).

    Not sure if I'm missing something or not.

    Thanks!

    I just looked at the spare Ripcord kit I have and it has 8 endcap/ferrules. One without the teflon nose and seven with. So if I read your question correctly you are definitely missing some parts.

    I do have the (7) nose ferrules but didn't think I would be using them since I'm not using the liner. So both shifters will use the nose ferrules and the rear derailleur will be the alloy ferrule WITHOUT the nose?

    -_- Nevermind. Didn't notice that there were end caps pre-installed at the ends of the housing.
