Further to my other post I took apart the barrel adjuster on one of my other bikes (NOT my Scott) and had a bit of a shock!

How bad is this???

Thats what happens when a housing cap has a failure or the wrong caps are used on the housing.

Thanks... but since this is an update why didn't you update your original thread and add on to that?

Your subject

is a bit vague because the only person expecting an update was... you.

Your post:

is also quite vague.

Just a suggestion: maybe in the subject line write something such as "Consequences of Housing Cap Failure"
and maybe in the post write something like "I was going to update something I was working on over here [link] and ended up finding this. I thought it would be worthwhile to start an entirely separate thread on the subject, and I'm glad it did not cause me harm while riding."
