Any help would be very very much appreciated as this is the last part of my dream build i need to sort out.
I am setting up my Dura Ace 9000 build with full Alligator I-links. I am running 4mm on the gear outers no problem. The 5mm brake outer does not fit inside the recessed brake entry of the 9000 levers due to the outer i-link housing being to big at its widest point. Alligator do not suggest running the 4mm outer for brakes, only gear. Non of the supplied adapters ect work with the 9000 levers as they are not long enough. I have met Alligator representatives at Eurobike and it is a incompatibility they were not aware of. I have also spoken to the UK importer of Alligator and they did not know as its not something they had tried yet. One obvious solution is to run standard outer from the lever to the a converter half way along the top of the bar but i want it to not be a chop together converted set up as such. Contadore was running I-links with 9000 at the last tour as i doubt Fausto would convert between the two. What it really needs is an extra long ferrule as such. i know it has been done but there is very little info at all . Please see image, the arrow shows the widest point, the blue shows how far the I-link goes inside and the red is how far it should go. Please anything would be great. Thanks. http://imgur.com/lhB2mN6
