Stumpy ghost shifting please help!!!!
I just built an 05 S-works stumpy frame ...and i have ghost shifting problems, wich i suspect are down to the lenght of the cable houseing going beneath the bottom bracket.
Can any one tell me the lenght of the cable housing for the rear deraulier, of the section running below the bottom bracket to the first braise on mounted on the swining arm please?
I had a similar problem on my Enduro and a too short section of cable housing was precisely the cause of the problem. I can't tell you how long the cable housing should be for your bike, but I can tell you how to find what it should be.

The other advantage to using this approach (as opposed to some random number that someone might give you) is that you'll be able to verify that this is indeed the reason for the ghost shifting. If you don't see the housing being pulled out of the stops when compressing the bike, you'll need to look elsewhere for the problem.
