Hi guys

I am re-fitting a pair of Weinmann 730 brakes to a restored Holdworth Signature. I need to replace the cables. Can I just use something like this?
http://www.evanscycles.com/products/cam ... t-ec007105 (I know, Evans, not exactly cool...)

Also, I have a Sakae SR Apex chainset that has a worn inner chainring. It looks pretty similar to a Campag Super Record chainset, are they interchangable?

If anyone know that would be great,

Thanks

Any stock cables should be fine - you will see a dramatic improvement in braking from modern cables. Just be careful to check that the pear ends fit snugly in the levers and can't slip out.

On chainrings: provided the bolts will fit through you should be fine. Older stuff (pre-indexing) all mixes and matches well.
