    Alfine8 Install!

    Hmmm it doesn't look right?

    The entry point for the shifter cable/housing in the cassette joint looks like it will interfere with the cog/chain/chainline. Am I missing something?

    I'm so glad yours is sticking up like that because I thought I did something wrong but I couldn't figure out another way and besides it doesn't bind. Sweet!

    I have vertical dropouts, but I got it like that the other day with some combo of non-turns. Ideas on bending it? Def need to bend it out a bit.

    Take the whole cassette joint assembly off, then remove the plastic components.
    That way you can clamp it it a vice and get a nice bend exactly where you want it without risking any damage to the plastic parts.
