About Brake Cables
Brake cables can make a big difference to the way your brakes feel, a good quality set of brake cables should make your brakes respond more positively and be more controllable, this will enable you to manage your speed through technical sections while off road or descending on the road. The invention of the brake cable, known as a Bowden cable, has been popularly attributed to Sir Frank Bowden, founder and owner of the Raleigh Bicycle company who, circa 1902, was reputed to have started replacing the rigid rods used for bicycle brakes with a flexible wound cable. The basic design has remained un-changed, but improvements in materials and technology have improved providing a smoother and more positive lever feel.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
If you have the combined brake&gear sti levers, Shimano recommends the 'SLR' type cable set (same outer width) -because the cable outer is slightly more flexible to fit under handlebar tape.
Do the contents of both items include gear AND brake cable/housing? Are there any differences between the two?
The road gear cable set contains 2 cables for the gear changing for front and back. The road brake set contains 2 cables for the brakes, front and back.
Hope this helps!
The gear cables only come with gear cable inners and outers and the brakes are supplied with only the brake inner and outers.
We will be happy to help via email or livechat if needed but I would advise taking these to a local bike shop to be fitted if you are not confident.
Will these cables work with my bike or do I need a different set with the adjuster fitted to the outer housing?
