A cable problem

I have referred to a problem I have had with my new three gear Shimano Nexus hub and the adjustments of it which are currently denying me use of all the gears. It appears that my basket is interfering with the cable and that may be the source of the problem, or at least part of it.In the first photo the handlebars are turned and you can see the cable is catching on the wires of the basket and this is interfering with the working of the cable, probably pulling it out of adjustment. Hopefully this problem can be easily solved as I am planning to replace the basket with a front rack if I can get one to fit.

    Don’t you just love it when a problem is so easily fixed?
    By the way, I forgot to tell you how much l like the red handlebar tape.

      I hope this realisation fixes the problem Annie, it certainly explains a lot of what was going on with the gears as they would inexplicably change at times.
      Thanks for the compliment on the tape too, I decided I would get as much red as possible on the bike and the chromed handlbars were not looking too good before.
