Cheers Alan,Called a "Noodle" usually.
But I've only ever seen them at the brake end of a V-brake cable. I'm not sure where you'd buy them - maybe local bike shop.
Good man,bird.I believe it's called 変速バナナ (Hensoku Banana) in Japanese.
Hensoku means shifting.
I'm using them on a butterfly handlebar.Im just wondering why you have your shifters in such a high position that you require the noodle in the first place? Just curious.
Yeah,it's a great bike very comfortable over long distances.I do like the Long Haul Trucker tho! That was one of the bikes I was considering prior to buying my salsa.
