    Mountain Goat stem question

    Swapping from v brakes to canti's & have a question about the cable routing through the stem.

    Were there any grommets or is the hole in the stem just that, a hole in the stem?

    I assume I should have a cable end on the cable as it's fully seated in the stem?

    If a cable ferrule fits, use it. Most often it won't.
