Use regular cables and cover them in the " heat-shrink " of your choice.

Very nice blue colour. Looks like an early AB to me. That is what the chainstay says too?

Also nice parts, the Nuovo GS and NR mix ...and of course the Gazelle rims :)

I have some. How much do you want? Brake/friction only, not STI.

Hi Old Ned and thanks for your offer.

There's a theme running with most of my posts and that is Ignorant Newbie feels like a twit asking about abbreviations and bike technology in general...

So; not wishing to disappoint, what does STI mean ?

I need enough outer for front and rear centre pull brakes and both derailleurs so about 3 Metres ?

How much would you like for that and how can I pay ?

Yours with many thanks,

Jolly

STI = Shimano Total Integrated (integrated with brake levers). Possibly Old Ned's cables won't work with indexed shifting because they are brake cables. Good for friction, but for index shifting you need SIS cables.

The other questions I can't answer :)
