    New question here. is there a "magical" tool for cable installation of alfine 11?

    my LBS keeps telling me that shimano has this template tool to adjust the bolt EXACTLY on a mm accuracy using a special template tool they sell only to workshops .

    so far i havn't found ANYTHING about it.

    Can't you just measure 184mm? Seems like a waste of money to me.

    I just adjust mine by eye a few times until it's close then finish adjusting with the barrel screw.
