Re: Wanted: Celeste (Bianchi green) brake hoods and cable housingHi Lori, You make no mention of what color cable housings,
and Brake Hoods you are trying to replace? If you can be
more descriptive, someone here might be able to point you in
the right direction. Also, pose this question to the Rec
bicycles Tech group.
If you're looking for Celeste Green Cable housings, I
myself have no idea who carries these. Brandford Bike
carries high quality LeTour Cables, and Housings in a slew
of colors (Yellow White Blue Black Silver) but no Celeste
Green. Even Bianchi USA does not show these. Bar Tape Yes,
but Cables, no.
Could you get away with just replacing the Cables
themselves, and not the housings? Or are these shot too?
As far as Modolo Parts/Brake Lever Hoods, one place to check
might be Ebay. Do a search online, and you may find someone
who carries what you seek. Hope this helps you, Mark
