I been eyeballing a set of dual control levers ever since a mate bought a GT with them on. Anyway, I decided it was time to dump the magura julies in place of a Shimano Deore LX dual control lever set and calipers. I got them off ebay, and they are totally new. Only hassle is, I look at the shimano hose, and there is a staple sticking thru it (must have been a packaging blooper cuz he has 100% positive feedback). I sent the guy a message but he has not responded.
Assuming that he wont take em back, what are my short term options? My mate said to snip the staple off (leaving part of it in there to plug the hole), and super glue around it to secure it. I told him it was a dumb idea, but we both agreed to post here first for opinions (there's a bet riding on this, and it's about time he got the next round of beers). I know my LBS wont have the cable kit and oil if I need to replace it (they totally suck for parts and service).
