Time to replace this shifter cable

Time to replace this sti cable housing, or is it good for another few thousand miles?


This is a rhetorical question, right?

(Replace; that’s a visible bulge in the wrapping. So you’ve got material failure going on.)

No, it’s not a bulge in the casing; it’s what’s left of the plastic ferrule after the outer part splintered off and the allegedly compressionless housing punched through the ferrule. ‘Tis only a flesh wound :-)
