    Why would you need an SRAM specific gear cable anyway? What is
    special about them?

    A quick eyeball of the Brompton Wide Range Hub (made, I believe by
    SA and surely all Brompton specific kit is "fancy") shows the cable
    has an end cover on it, but it is purely cosmetic as it sits some
    way past the clamp.

  3. Crimping an end cover on the clamped end is common practice on most bike
    cables. That's different from Nick's (extremely unusual) case.

    Do you dispute that a Pedersen of the *correct size* for its rider has
    an upright riding position?

    You'd have to be a giant for the Extra Large frame listed at
    http://www.pedersenbicycles.com/specifications.htm to be too small.

    SRAM DualDdrive also uses a single ended cable (for both changers).

  6. Brake and gear cables of all sorts are available in lengths suitable for
    tandems.

  7. Do keep up. That's "all sorts except one particular model of hub Nick has,
    so that's all that counts". (Except having since read a manual for the
    Spectro S7, it turns out (not entirely surprisingly) that that can use
    a single ended replacement gear cable too, though it's unusual in that the
    cut and clamped end is in the shifter.)

  8. Not quite. I'm pretty sure some tandem manufacturers or tandem parts
    vendors will fit oddball ends if you really want it. The Bandit used to do
    it.
