variable travel of cable from servo to gears
For anyone who may be interested in having the cable travel adjustable, I'll share this idea...
Say you're using a 15mm servo horn, but don't all gears covered? You can use a larger diameter and try it out of course. 
In the process of developing Shift4Me, I thought about an adjustable travel of the cable, with the same servo horn.
Here's what I came up with: a piece that would turn around a fixed point of the bike, and with cable fix points that could be adjusted along the piece. That way, you could adjust the amount of travel without disassembling anything.
I never tried it out (because I loved to keep a minimal design) but it should work.
Possible disadvantage: a little tolerance in the travel caused by the pivot point of the piece.
