Rethreading spindle on Gilles Berthoud twist shifter
« on: July 18, 2020, 12:12:41 PM »
Hi folks,

I had to take my GB twist apart in order to get it on some handlebars. In the process I had to de-construct the rear box that actuates the hub. Now I canít get any of it to work anymore! I canít find any instructions for the system anywhere online, and am worried Iíve buggered it beyond all recognition. 

At the moment I have two cables threaded from the twister, coming out by the hub. I canít get the twist to actually twist, and I canít figure out how to re-wind the cable back on the little spindle thatís turns round.

Any thoughts, or have I just been a colossal idiot?

Have you contacted GB to ask for an installation diagram/instructions?

Uhh...re-reading, do you mean the problem is in the EX box? If so, it is relatively easy to re-wind the cables 'round the pulley wheel in the shift-box. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_ha9__3VLg

Best,

Dan.
