Hi All,

Can anyone please tell me the size of the outer cable (original) as min needs replacing and would like to use all original cable routes.

Many Thanks

Older gear cable outers tended to be 5mm in diameter whereas nowadays they are usually 4mm.

Brake cable outers are normally 5mm unless you go for the scarcely available 6mm oversize outers and the 2mm inners that go with them.
