I was just geting around to setting these up on a bike but the place on the lever where the ferrule fits is 8mm which is much large than the cable. Is there some kind of spacer that I can use or were the cable housings actually that big? If so, what are my options?

BIG cables

Any source for the larger cable, housing and ferrels?
I've got the same Suntour set up going on the '94 Kona project...
Back in '88 I used large cables for most my setups.

Also- What ever happened to the Dia-Comp cables that were rolled smooth?
Seems they are no longer available and a simple way to reduce friction rather than coating the cable as is now so common.
