    Threading rear derailleur cable

    I'm sure this has been brought up multiple times, but anyone have advice on threading a derailleur cable throught the seat stay on the Truth?

    So far it seems like I need try a million times and get lucky to get the cable out of the stay? Am I missing some easy technique?

    {Principal Skinner} Hmm. Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.
    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    Wire hanger + duct tape

    Geez, it was like trying to unlock your car with a coat hanger. Had to dremel down the end of a coat hanger so that the derailleur cable and hanger could be overlapped then duct taped together without getting thicker than the exit hole on the stay. Put a gradual bend in the wire and popped out the cable housing stop.

    Not the most elegant solution, but either is the design of the seat stay. Hmmm?
