    Which cables for Falcon Power Derailleurs?

    What type of cables do I need to use with Falcon Power PIS derailleurs (indexed 5 speed rear, 3 speed front)? Shimano SIS?

    too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter

    Unless you have a "positron" derailleur - which was the 1st generation index and would be recognizable because it used 2 cables (push/pull) to control it - you use a standard Shimano compatible derailleur cable. This is the most common cable today, and what you'd most likely get if you bought a generic cable.
