Morning chaps
Bit of a silly Q, but going to run BB7's on my next project....would a standard cable set be long enough for the rear?

I had a BB5 on the rear of my Inbred for a while and a standard rear cable set was plenty long enough and that was with a continuous run from lever to calliper.

Only thing to consider is the outer supplied with the cable set. Some brands come with cut sections suited to part exposed cables so worth checking you get a single length.
