Hi,
Is there any difference in gear inner cables for Road or Mountainbike use?
Having removed the gear cables from the Dawes Galaxy, they look identical to ones on my mountain bikes.
Sorry, not had much experience with road bikes!

Cheers

Rich :D

some cheaper makes have a slightly bigger nipple which makes fitting to ergos/sti's difficult, ie they wont fully seat into their housing
