- Stuck reverb hose, in internal routing
I’ve managed to get my reverb hose stuck in the internal routing guide, by pulling out backwards by mistake – so the end that goes into the dropper is jammed in the internal guide.
I’ve tried pushing it back out, a lot, with no joy. I’ve also tried yanking it to break the internal guide – but again no joy.
Has anyone got any ideas how to get it back out?
Here’s a photo to explain it…
It’s this internal guide, with the reverb end stuck…

That’s not gonna be strong enough unfortunately.
So far, I’ve tried 18 and 24tpi hacksaw blades attached to dowel, a Stanley knife blade the same.
Tried hooking with a loop of cable.
Gonna try to see if I can thread the end of the connectamajig nut onto the threaded barb, with a bar attached.
This is definitely not easy!Posted 1 week ago
Well, fixed it! Big thanks to Nic at Fallline Cycles in Peebles, we bounced a few ideas around and he had a great idea about using a connectamajig nut.
If anyone has this problem in the future (which I doubt anyone’s dumb enough to do this).
Here’s what I did…
I cable-tied a 35tpi hacksaw blade to some dowel, then glued a Stanley blade to the end. I cut the rubber boot off the internal routing, which exposed the barb’s thread, then removed the blade.
I then sawed a cut in the internal routing hose.
I got the nut from a connectamajig, sawed it in half, then chamfered some dowel of around 7mm, then drifted it in, and glued it in place.
I then took a 6.5mm wood bit, and drilled out the middle of the dowel.
I screwed the tool onto the exposed reverb barb thread and pulled. The internal routing snapped clean off and the hose came out.
