NOS Vintage Cable Crimp Caps: Short & Stubby - 1970's 1980's (Set of 4)
These vintage DIA-COMPE Spicy Road cable crimps were commonly found stock on high end classic road bicycles and mountain bikes of the 1970's and 1980's. They have a thicker metal than flimsy modern crimps, and they're much shorter at 7.3mm (modern crimps are 10-12mm usually). They do not have the lip at the end that modern crimps have. Works for both shift and brake cables of most diameters.
Note: DIA-COMPE still produces cable crimps under the name Spicy Road, but these current production ones are longer and have a lip.
They look really clean next to your vintage brakes, and are great for period correct restorations.
*All of these catalogs came from a closed Schwinn dealer called Kings Cyclery in Casper, Wyoming that I bought out. Everything was ordered directly from the Schwinn factory.
