How do I remove my old cable crimp?
We recommend snipping off the end with cable shears (available at your local bike shop, or if you'd like to buy, our favorites are the Felco C7's). You can also grab the very tip of the old cable crimp with pliers and pull. Often it will come right off.
How do I install the Cable Cherries?
1) Back the set screw out a few turns, and insert cable end all the way into the smaller, unthreaded hole. If your cable end is a little frayed, twist the ends back together in the direction they were originally wound, or cut the frayed end off with cable shears.
2) Tighten the set screw using the long end of the included wrench. As long as you stick to this end of the wrench, it is very hard to over tighten and damage the Cherry threads, so get it good n' tight. Give the Cherry a small tug to make sure it's secure, and go ride!
Can I use the same Cable Cherries on both shift and brake cables?
Yep! They work equally well with both.

I lost a Cherry, what can I do?
If you lose a Cherry on your bike, (it falls off the cable) we'll replace it. This has been rare, but it can happen if the screws aren't tight enough. If it does just let us know. Send an email with your current mailing address and order #, and we'll send a replacement. We realize that our little fruits are an investment, and want you to know that you're covered for life!
