2013 10 Speed Grip Shift Thread
To try and get this solved.
I have a 2012 SRAM XO 10 speed gripshift, and the new cable won't thread. I rotate the barrel away from me all the way to expose the hole, and when I try to thread in the new cable, it goes about 3/4 of an inch in and just stops. I must have tried every way to manipulate the cable, and it's just won't go in. I also can't feed it from the other (barrel adjuster) end of the shifter.
Any ideas or tips? It's the last part of my build and it's driving me crazy. The SRAM instructions are no help either.
I haven't been able to find any other instances of this on the internet.
Interestingly though, when I search Google for "problem replacing cable sram 10 gripshift," the MTBR review of "SRAM X0 2×10 with Grip Shift" (Review: SRAM X0 2×10 with Grip Shift | Mountain Bike Review) pops up with the highlighted phrase "Only issues I ever had with Gripshift were difficulties threading the cable in when installing and the..." in the search results. But when I actually look at that review and the separate grip shift review (SRAM 10-speed Grip Shift Review | Mountain Bike Review) and the comments, that phrase is nowhere to be found. It's weird. Any ideas what's going on there? Has the review been edited since it was posted?
