Fuji right shifter housing
#1
[attachment=4121][attachment=4121]I have a Sillhoutte and the shifter cable housing has a 90 deg. bend at the downtube connection.The opposite side shifter does not have this bend.Is this a possible bend that has been done by an incorrect cable housing routing.It just looks to be to much of a drastic bend.

Doubtful that just incorrect routing would cause that. More likely that the cable caught on something or got banged pretty hard.

But you definitely need to replace the housing piece. Note that shifter housing is different than brake housing. Easiest may be to take the bent piece into a shop and see if they have something of similar length.
