I just got one of these, and haven't installed it yet.
However, based on looking at it, I don't expect I will need to replace cables or housings when I put it onto my Sedona DX.
My suspicion for most bars that these would be used to replace, the controls will be closer to the stem laterally (left/right) but further from the stem front/back. This should offset to about the same in my case, ymmv...
If nobody answers definitively here, you may want to check in the Commuting or Touring forums, as I know people in those forums have installed these trekking bars.
