Accellerator Cables for Midgets (2)
by Joel M. Young in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Attached is a photo of 'Jenny', my Midget, and a close-up of a tip I came up with for a smoother throttle cable. It's called a 'noodle' by the bike mechanic crowd, and is from Shimano 'V Brakes.' Fits into the flange perfectly, and gets the cable away from the bonnet nicely. I use a standard teflon-lined bike brake cable, and the throttle is much smoother.
