    What cables to order

    Hi,

    I'm going to be putting a new set of bars on my road bike so I thought I'd replace the cables as well - they're about five years old now.

    Problem is there is no bike shop for 200 miles & I don't know which cables to purchase.

    I have Shimano Dura-Ace components.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Joe

    STI shift cables and generic brake cables. If you are just swapping out the bars, onlt brake cables required.

    If you're going to replace the cables be sure to also replace the cable housings. They are at least as important.
